Living for Sport

SKY Sports Living for Sport invites nominations from secondary school teachers across Scotland and the UK for the Sky Sports Living for Sport 2012 Awards.

The Awards, which have two categories: Student of the Year and Teacher of the Year, celebrate the successful way secondary schools across Scotland are using sport to inspire young people.

The Awards offer schools in Scotland, which have registered and delivered a Sky Sports Living for Sport project this academic year, the chance to bring to light their sporting journeys and share their stories of success.

Olympic gold medal winning sprinter and Sky Sports Living for Sport Ambassador, Darren Campbell MBE, will lead the judging panel to help decide this year’s 12 student regional finalists.

He said: “It’s incredible to watch how students’ attitudes can shift through a single session and how belief in themselves and their abilities can be transformed.”

The regional finalists will each receive a £50 sports voucher, a year’s free Sky Sports subscription for the student and school, a trophy and certificate, as well as the chance to be interviewed by a Sky Sports crew.

The Student of the Year 2012 will received a £100 sports voucher and his or her school will also secure an extra visit from an Athlete Mentor and £2,000 towards their school’s next Sky Sports Living for Sport project.

Teacher of the Year, and two runners-up, will win £2,000 and £1,000 respectively towards their school’s next project.

And new to the 2012 Awards is a School of the Decade award. Chosen by judges, this award recognises the outstanding success of a school that over the past 10 years has used Sky Sports Living for Sport to motivate, inspire and enhance students’ life skills and attainment.
