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.

2019 Monash University Blues Awards

Unfortunately, Monash University will not be hosting the 57th annual Monash University Blues Awards in 2020, where we had planned to recognise the achievements of our 2019 awardees.

Due to the current health crisis this nation, and the world, is facing, we have been forced to cancel the event.

Of course, the 2019 award recipients will still be acknowledged, and have since been contacted to arrange the mailing of their award with instructions on how to share through Team Monash Social Media Channels. Check them out here.

The Monash University Blues awards are a distinguished and extremely important event for our students, staff, alumni and the wider Monash community and we acknowledge the hours of time and care this committee took in assessing and honouring 2019's deserving candidates.

To ensure the 2019 awardees receive the full recognition that they deserve, they will be invited to celebrate with fellow awardees from 2020 at the 2021 event, when the time allows.

Nomination notes: The definition of a student is an individual that has been enrolled in at least one unit at Monash University during the period (1 November to 30 October annually)

An individual’s performance will be considered by the University annually. A student athlete is eligible to be awarded a sporting blue in multiple years so long as the performance is assessed as meeting the criteria agreed by the Blues Advisory Committee.
