Nominate your Rising Stars and Star Clubs for a cash prize award

In addition to the annual Nationwide Junior Sports Awards in 2012, Nationwide Building Society have donated funding to Disability Sport Events, for ten disabled people to win a Rising Star Award and five clubs or groups to win a Star Clubs Award. It is open to all age groups and all home countries can enter– England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland. A cash prize of £1,000 for each individual and £2,000 for each club will be awarded.

Judged by their panel, the Star Clubs awards will go to clubs or groups demonstrating excellence in inclusion of disabled people in sport- the management, development and competition. You can specialise in one sport or be a multi-sport club, and do not need to have lots of elite disabled sports people to be measured on success. All your club needs to do is demonstrate how you have achieved success in sport for disabled people, whatever level this may be. The prize money must be used for your sports club/group’s development for disabled people.

The Rising Star awards will go to disabled individuals demonstrating potential excellence in their sport or sports. They do not need to already be an elite athlete to be measured on success. All they need to demonstrate is a growing talent and potential in sport, whatever level this may be. The chosen winner must use the prize money for their development in sport.

The deadline for submission of nominations is 9 November. If your nomination is successful two lucky guests will be invited to the exclusive Nationwide Disability Sports Awards being held at Lancashire Cricket Club in Manchester on Thursday 6 December 2012.
