Rising Star Award Criteria
All clubs put forward 2 nominations from which fit the criteria of a “rising star” by the end of Round 7.
These players must be under 19 years of age at the commencement of the 2013 season.
They must have played no more than 10 senior games of football in 2012 or before.
20 players will be recognised (clubs to nominate 2 players each) as nominees and will be featured (2 per week) in the football guide, website & the Bendigo Advertiser on a weekly basis from round 10 through to Wk 1 of finals.
All nominations must be accompanied by text describing the achievements of the nominated players and the reason they have been nominated, along with a photo.
A selection panel will then determine the 6 finalists & the eventual winner, who will be presented with the award on Michelsen Medal day.
The aim of this award is to recognise our future champions and to promote their achievements.
