We are launching The Sporting Promise Outstanding Young Person Award to recognise the powerful impact that the programme is having on young people in primary and secondary schools across the country.

We want to hear how, through Sporting Promise, sport is changing lives in your schools and are encouraging you to nominate a young person where you have seen the greatest impact.

Simply go to the Sporting Promise website and fill in a short form to be in with a chance of winning a personalised visit from Sir Steve Redgrave, one of Great Britain's greatest ever Olympians. The winning entry will also receive £1000 for their school.

We encourage teachers, young leaders, or school council's to complete the entry form with nominations for this award.

Lee Pinnington, Matalan's Multi-channel marketing director said: "We are delighted to extend our partnership with the Sporting Promise programme. This new award is the perfect way to celebrate the many success stories across the country."

Phil Chamberlain, Director of Policy and Communications at the Youth Sport Trust, said: "Sporting Promise is an excellent way to encourage young people at both primary and secondary schools to get involved in PE and sport. This award will celebrate those who have benefited the most and I am looking forward to reading some of the inspirational entries."
