Junior Sports Awards Program


Council in conjunction with a number of corporate sponsors, provide a Sports Award Program.

Conditions apply as follows:

  • The awards are open to all Blayney youngsters (18 years and under) who either attend local schools or are members of a Blayney amateur sporting association.
  • The aim of the awards is to acknowledge outstanding local youngsters from the Blayney district and assist with their expenses as they represent New South Wales in national events (ie: Australian Championships) or Australia in International events. As a general rule, invitation carnivals or events and honorary/merit team selections are ineligible. In special circumstances, consideration will be given to extend the awards to include other events, i.e.: regional representation in international events, etc.
  • Nominations should be lodged on an Official Application Form as soon as possible prior to the event and no less than three weeks, so as to allow on-air promotion of the forthcoming event. Please provide all the information requested. A club official or teacher must authorise and sign nominations.
  • Financial awards are available for individuals or for teams made up of six or more team members. Following approval of the application, a cheque will be forwarded to the school or club representing the recipient(s). A maximum of three awards may be applied for in each financial year.
  • The awards do not extend to club officials, coaches or teaching staff, however if the person is a junior, awards may be considered for referees for national/ international events.
  • Nominations should be made by the Blayney school or sporting association which represents the nominated junior sportsperson: i.e School teams - CHS, CCC, ISA, CIS, should be nominated through their local Blayney school and all association teams N.S.W., Country, Australia, etc. through the appropriate local Blayney junior sporting association.
Awards will not be sent direct to the recipient, but will be forwarded to Council in the first instance for an appropriate Public Presentation. We would ask that Award Sponsors be acknowledged. Upon request, a sponsor representative will be arranged to attend the presentation
