The inaugural The New Paper School Sports Star Award will recognise student sportsboys and sportsgirls like no other to date.
Its key focus will be on the student's contributions to his school.
His other achievements, like playing for Singapore or Singapore Schools, winning special awards or setting national marks may be a bonus, but will not be primary considerations.
More important than these accolades, the TNP triple-S Award would like to give recognition to sportsmanship as well.
We welcome nominations from anyone, be it the athlete’s parents, siblings, relatives or school teachers or friends.
National Sports Associations can also recommend their sportsboys and sportsgirls for this award, which comes with some attractive prizes.
Later in the year, we will shortlist five boys and five girls for the final vote which will come from you, the reader, and the TNP panel.
