The SportWest Awards are Western Australia’s premier sports awards.
The SportWest Awards enable the West Australian community to recognise excellence in sport and celebrate the achievements of WA sportspeople.
The most prestigious sporting award that a West Australian athlete can win is the Sport Star Award. Many of Western Australia’s outstanding sportspeople have won this award since it was first presented to Morna Pearce in 1956.
Many thousands of people benefit from participating in and supporting sport at all levels. People involved in sport in their community learn many personal and community values through their own sporting endeavours, whilst gaining inspiration from their sporting heroes.
