Nominations close Friday!
The UNSW Blues and Sports Awards Dinner is one of the highlights of the events calendar each year - it's a great opportunity to come together as a community and celebrate the year that was and the achievements of our athletes, coaches, administrators, teams and clubs.
The students selected for a UNSW Blue are chosen by the Blues committee each year and must fulfill a range of criteria. Blues winners personify the qualities that sport brings to the University community. They contribute high University sporting achievement, commitment to their club and demonstrate the key sporting values of teamwork and selflessness across the whole of their University life.
The Blues and Sports Awards are open to nominations NOW from the entire UNSW sporting community and while certain awards are designated for current students, there are a range of awards where nominees do not need to be students.
