UWA Sports Awards and University Blues
UWA has a strong history of recognizing excellence within its sporting community, through the awarding of university blues, and the annual UWA Sports Awards which recognise outstanding achievements and contributions to sport at the university.
UWA Sports Awards
The annual UWA Sports Awards look to acknowledge students and members of UWA Sporting clubs for their service and achievements through the awarding of, Club Letter, Champion Club, Coach of the Year, Club Service and Sports Star of the Year. The Awards also recognise the winners of the Intervarsity, Interfaculty and Intercollege competitions, played over the preceding year.
Nominations are now closed for award categories.
The Blues has a rich history, with Full Blue and Half Blues awarded by the Sports Council to UWA student athletes since 1921. These awards are considered the highest honor universities can bestow upon outstanding student athletes for not only their athletic abilities but their contributions to the university and their respective clubs throughout the year. UWA Blues are one of UWA Sports oldest and most prestigious traditions. Many notable Australian sports men and women have received the award over the years, and the “blues” are an institution recognized the world over.
UWA Sport is committed to maintaining contact with sport alumni and those that have made university sport a success, not only for their athletic abilities but their contributions to the university and their respective clubs throughout the year. Blues recipients are encouraged to provide their latest information and contact details. To do so please email [email protected]
In addition to keeping in touch, we want to hear from people who are able to contribute and provide information on former students who have received a Blues Award. We are interested in stories, photographs, copies of certificates or medals and biographies. Your contributions will be used for upcoming events and featured on the new UWA Sport website. If you have something you would like to contribute and/or donate please get in touch with us at [email protected] or call 6488 7661.
