The 2017 Cloud Copy Click Sports Star of the Year awards will be announced in just four weeks’ time, with preparations for the gala event continuing.

Sports Star’s prestigious honour roll includes Olympic, world and Commonwealth champions, as well as stars such as reigning Sports Star winner, Olympic and NBA basketballer Matthew Dellavedova.

After last year announcing the formation of a new scholarships program to assist emerging athletes and their at times difficult path to sporting success and glory, the Sports Star committee will this year announce the inaugural recipients from the scholarships program in a new initiative which has won strong backing from the local community.  

The long-running awards initiative also encompasses the Bendigo Health sponsored Healthy Schools award, which offers cash prizes worth $3000 to local schools in recognition of their commitment to promoting good health in their respective communities.

Sports Star committee chair Wendy James this week announced entries for the popular schools based competition had been extended to allow more schools the opportunity to enter, with the revised closing date of Tuesday, February 14.
