The judges will select the Prize Winners at their sole discretion and will evaluate the nominations with reference to, but not limited by, the following criteria:

    • Primary schools nationwide.

    • No current sport related sponsorships in place.

  • Strength of nomination

    • Number of unique nominations the primary school receives.

    • How the prize could help overcome challenges the primary school currently faces when running sports activities.

The prize winners will be selected by 19 April 2024 and will be contacted by phone.

The prize will be paid to the school directly from AAI.

AAI reserves the right in its sole discretion to cancel the Competition, refuse to award the Prize or any part of the Prize or to award the Prize to another entrant selected at the sole discretion of AAI, where it considers that an entry was invalid or has not complied with these terms and conditions.
