Local champions and young achievers in sport will be recognised as part of the NSW Government’s Her Sport Her Way Awards, with nominations now open.
Member for the Dubbo electorate Dugald Saunders said the Her Sport Her Way Awards celebrate and honour the achievements of women and organisations that are breaking down barriers for women’s sport in NSW.
“The Her Sport Her Way Awards recognise the achievements of women and organisations in driving powerful change and leaving a legacy for the way women’s sport is played in NSW,” Mr Saunders said.
“Women make such an incredible contribution to sporting clubs and organisations across our community.
“If you know a local who is going above and beyond for the sport they love, nominate them for these awards.”
The Her Sport Her Way Awards feature five categories – Young Achiever, Local Champion, Outstanding Organisation, Trailblazer and Overall Champion.
Minister for Sport Alister Henskens said the awards are part of the NSW Government’s women in sport strategy, Her Sport Her Way.
“This program is all about increasing female participation in sport, whether that’s on the field or in administration, coaching and volunteer roles,” Mr Henskens said.
“Since the inception of this program four years ago, the number of women and girls playing sport has sky-rocketed, and by investing in grassroots programs and initiatives across NSW, we will continue to secure a brighter future for women in sport.”
Applications for the awards close on 28 February. For more information on the Her Sport Her Way program, visit www.sport.nsw.gov.au/hersportherway.
