Award that leads to the best of the best

Matamata Chronicle - - Sport -

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.
