The NT News is recognising and celebrating the exceptional talents of our sporting community by hosting the Local Sports Star Awards 2018.  The search is on for future sports stars, kids who love to play sport, teams that are the heart and soul of the local sports oval, pool and field; and the mums, dads, coaches and supporters who make it all possible.  Tell us who they are and they could be in the running to win individual or team prizes.

With the recent Indigenous, Underage, National and Country Cricket Championships in late 2017 and early 2018, we anticipate some excellent nominations of our NT junior male and female players, supporters, coaches and volunteers.  The nominations must highlight their achievements during the period from 1 September 2017 through to 31 August 2018, so good performances over the recent championships, the Alice Springs season and the coming Top End season will certainly count.
