Sporty teachers on their marks for new award

Have your say

SPORTS-MAD students could be up for a national award.

 Sky Sports Living has launched the Student of the Year Awards 2011 and is inviting nominations from secondary school teachers across the North East.

 The awards celebrate the way secondary schools in the region are using sport to inspire young people through the free initiative.

 This year a new award has been created to recognise the teacher who has gone the extra mile in helping their students take part in the initiative.

 All students and teachers who have taken part in or run a Sky Sports Living for Sport project this academic year are eligible for nomination.

 To nominate students, teachers should go to and download the application form.

 The closing date for applications is July 15.
