Search is on for little stars
Jetstar and Little Athletics Australia are taking their partnership to the next level with this year’s Little Jetstars competition, and Karratha children have the chance to be in the running.
The competition searches for Australia’s most passionate young athletes, celebrating good sportsmanship and dedication.
Five lucky winners will receive an exclusive training session for themselves and 15 friends with one of Jetstar’s big heroes, former Olympian John Steffensen.
Steffensen said he was very excited to be a part of the program this year and get back to the grassroots of where his athletic career began.
“Little Athletics holds very fond memories for me and it is such a great start for any kid who loves sport," he said.
“I’m really excited to be part of the Little Jetstars program and can’t wait to have a run around with the kids.”
The first of the five Little Jetstars competition winners will be announced this month and the remaining winners will be announced monthly through to March. To enter the competition, registered Little Athletics participants need to describe in 25 words or fewer who their big sports hero is and why at jetstars.com. au.
Entries close at midnight on February 28.
