Call for entries open through August 9, 2010 


Beyond Sport, the global initiative that promotes, develops and funds the use of sport to create positive social change, has launched a new opportunity for Chicago-based sport projects – the United Airlines Chicago Impact Award. 

The Award, launched in conjunction with the global Beyond Sport Summit 2010 in Chicago (September 29-30), will provide funding and business support for the sport project that has made the most impact in a Chicagoland community.

“As the Global Airline Partner for Beyond Sport, we are thrilled to be able to recognize and honour a sport initiative in our own hometown that addresses a critical societal need in an innovative way,” said Marci Kaminsky, Vice President of Corporate Responsibility for United. 

“We look forward to helping strengthen and support a deserving organization that is having a meaningful impact in the community”.

The call for entries for the United Airlines Chicago Impact Award will be open until August 9, 2010. Chicagoland organizations that are doing unique and innovative work to drive social change through sport are encouraged to apply. The nominees will be vetted by a specially selected judging panel, and the winner will be decided by public vote via the Beyond Sport website.

The winner will be announced on September 29 in a special presentation ceremony at the Mayor’s Welcome Reception for the Summit at the United Center in Chicago .

Joining Chicago Mayor Richard M. Daley at the Summit to help further the mission of Beyond Sport and discuss ways to accelerate the positive impact of sport on communities will be a number of influential global figures including HRH Prince Faisal Al Hussein of Jordan; multi-Olympic gold medallists Ian Thorpe and Michael Johnson; FIFA Secretary General Jerome Valcke; and Care USA specialist Dr. Auma Obama. The Summit will also be attended by leaders from business, sport, social innovation, and government, with high-profile representatives from companies and organizations from around the world.
