The 2020 Readers Choice Awards were kind to the Prince George Cougars.

The WHL Club was named “Favourite Local Sports Team” as well as “Most Community-Minded” by the Prince George Citizen.

Each year the local paper conducts a poll where print and digital readers vote for businesses in multiple categories.

“Our team is proud to be locally owned and operated, and we owe this recognition to the amazing support we receive from our fans and community,” said Cougars’ Vice President, Business Andy Beesley.

“We are extremely fortunate to have incredible businesses who continue to support us, which allows us to be leaders in giving back to our city. I’d also like to thank the Prince George Citizen for showcasing all the local business winners.”
