Award that leads to the best of the best
The search for New Zealand’s most talented young sports people is under way with the launch of the 2011 ASICS Sports Awards, giving year 7 and 8 students the chance to win the ultimate prize – an annual elite athlete sponsorship package.
Students who have achieved outstanding results or who have defied the odds to achieve sporting success at intermediate school are eligible to be nominated for the award.
The awards will be judged at the end of each school term, across five regions throughout New Zealand with term one nominations closing on April 15. Every term a winner from each region will be announced with all regional winners then eligible for the supreme award which will be judged and announced at the end of the year.
Regional winners will receive ASICS gear for themselves and their school, while the supreme award winner will be invited to follow in the footsteps of the likes of Casey Williams and Isaia Toeava as a sponsored elite ASICS athlete.
Nominations can be made online at www.asicssportsaward.co.nz.
