UC Blues Awards – open for nominations

Since 1913 the UCSA has been recognising and awarding students who excel in their chosen sport.

In 2017, the UCSA in association with UC developed the traditional sports focused Blues event into an all-round awards night celebrating a broader scope of student success. The event now consists of Sports, Community Engagement and the Arts categories.

Receiving an award at our Blues ceremony is the highest honour we can present students who have excelled in these areas.

The categories for major awards are:

Sportsperson of the Year, Outstanding contribution to University Sport, Team of the Year, Coach of the Year, Outstanding Achievement in the Arts, Outstanding Achievement in Community Engagement, and Outstanding Contribution to Sustainability.

Nomination Criteria:

  • Nominations must be made via the prescribed form via the UCSA website, with all sections completed
  • Anyone may nominate a person for a Blue. Individuals are able to nominate themselves.
  • Nominations must be made before or on the close of nominations date. Nominations made after such date will not be considered by the Blues committee.

Nominations for the Blues Awards close 5.00pm, Sunday 12 August.

Nominees announced 3 September. Updates on the awards will be posted on the UCSA’s Facebook page.

The Blues Awards are being held at the UCSA Event’s Centre, 29 September.

UC Sport – Design a Mascot Competition

Mascot image

Who doesn’t love a good mascot? They can unite a community, bring luck, and represent the common goals of the team or organisation it represents! Do you want to be part of history? Then get designing!

UC Sport is running a design competition for a new mascot and all students are invited to submit their ideas. The design for the mascot should unite all sport clubs, teams and the wider UC sporting community under one banner.

It should define the UC brand and be identifiable by internal and external communities as representing UC. The mascot will be displayed in UC sport publications, advertisements, the website, clothing, future facilities and more. It will be actively involved in the promotion of UC Sport events, as well as UC events on campus.

The mascot will need to be positively perceived by children and adults, and embody the values and reflect the culture of UC and its students. The mascot should reflect who we are as a university and the design will need to incorporate UC’s colours of red, grey and black.

UC Sport clubs and their teams will continue to be known by their own nicknames.

The competition is open from 15 July, and runs through to 15 August.

If you think you have the winning idea then make sure you enter the competition and help create history!
