Awards for womens sport

Applications for a special award recognising individuals who have made an outstanding contribution to womens sport in NSW close on February 28.

Research has shown that as women get older they tend to participate in sport to a lesser degree than men, and the NSW Government believes the award is a great way to encourage women of all ages to continue being active.

The award itself is not restricted to women and is open to anyone who has made a contribution to the welfare of women; developed a successful program targeting women; is linked to the sport and recreation industry; has trailblazed within a sport or industry; or is an unsung champion who does amazing things for their sport with little or no recognition.

Applicants must be over 18 and the winner will receive a trophy, a $250 gift voucher and complimentary membership to Womensport and Recreation NSW.

For further information on the NSW Ministers Recognition Award for Contribution to Women in Sport and Recreation, phone Carolyn Brimfield on 9006 3823 or download an application form from
