Blues Awards

The Monash University Blues Awards celebrate outstanding sporting achievement whilst representing the University.

'Blues' are the most prestigious of University sporting awards, presented each year to students who demonstrate outstanding sporting performance.

A Monash University Blue may be awarded to an individual student athlete that represented the University and has achieved an outstanding performance (either individually or as part of a university team) during the 12-month period commencing 1 November to 30 October.

Nominations and awards process

A nomination for a Blue must be submitted to Director Team MONASH using the approved nomination documentation by the 30th October each year.

All nominations will be assessed and formally approved at a meeting of the Blues Advisory Committee.

The Blues Advisory Committee shall consider the nomination against the level and standard of competition the individual or team has represented the university in and their performance/outcome for that year and may reference previous award criteria and history.

The Monash University Blues shall be awarded at an official ceremony to be conducted in March following the nomination period.
