“The Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games is much more than a sporting event – it is an opportunity for businesses, organisations and communities across Scotland to benefit now and in the future”
When the XX Commonwealth Games opens in Glasgow on Wednesday 23 July 2014, it will be the biggest event ever to be staged in Scotland. The Game Changer Awards 2014 is a one-off event to recognise and celebrate the varied and significant contributions that Scotland’s colleges and higher education institutions are making to every aspect of the games and to sport in Scotland.
The Games are much more than a sporting event. They also represent an opportunity for Scotland to showcase its creative and cultural talent, to celebrate and extend connections with the nations and territories of the Commonwealth and delivery a lasting legacy. This spirit is reflected in the Game Changer awards with six different categories that recognise the huge breadth of contribution colleges and higher education institutions are making.
This award recognises a project or initiative in which college and higher education institutions have utilised Glasgow 2014 and its legacy goals to make a significant contribution or substantial difference in sport, sporting performance or activity levels.
