About the Magpie Awards

2017 Magpie Award Nominations NOW CLOSED

$20,000 towards recognising and Rewarding Local Sporting Excellence

This year we celebrate the Magpie Awards’ 55th year. The Magpie Award is geared to recognise and reward outstanding achievements by sports people and their organisations within the local community.

Sporting organisations are invited to nominate a sports person who has achieved excellence in performance, selection in a representative team or notable commendation during the preceding year.

Recipients of the award are not only recognised within our community but receive a cash component to further assist with their careers and personal needs while continuing to achieve sporting excellence. Additionally their organisations are rewarded, so they too can continue their great work.

The “Magpie Award” is mirrored with the “Magpie Junior Award”, based on the same criteria, although to qualify nominees must be under the age of 18 years at the time of their accomplishments.

The “Directors Encouragement Award” is available to all nominees and is designed to further reward sporting talents from the high caliber pool of submissions.

The “Magpie Volunteer Award” recognises the behind-the-scenes support persons. It’s evident that organisations and their sports people of today would not have achieved their standings without the support, passion and goodwill of these fine people.

The Magpie Award is integral to Wests Ashfield Leagues support for the local community and is an initiative that enables us to honour the contributions made by the many and varied sporting organisations and their people within our district.
