Pierre de Coubertin

The Pierre de Coubertin Awards are named after the founder of the modern Olympic Games. The Awards take place on an annual basis and recognise senior secondary students who demonstrate values which are consistent with the Olympic Movement through participation in sporting activities.

All secondary government and non government schools are invited to nominate one recipient for the Pierre de Coubertin Award each year (only) from year 10, 11 or 12.

Each nominee must participate actively in the school’s physical education program with a consistently positive attitude. At some stage during years 8-12 the nominee must have represented the school in either swimming, athletics or cross country and at least two other competitive sports. A piece of original art work (for example – poetry, songs, paintings etc) which illustrates the student’s appreciation of the Olympic Movement must also be submitted.
