The Youth Sport Trust is urging schools to nominate a student for the Sky Sports Living for Sport 2014/15 Student of the Year Award.

To celebrate another successful year, Sky Sports Living for Sport, part of Sky Academy, is urging schools to tell the story of the journey a student has been on through taking part in a Sky Sports Living for Sport project and why they should be named Student of the Year.  

So if you're a secondary school teacher who ran a Sky Sports Living for Sport project during the 2014/15 academic year, all you need to do is complete the simple form here.

Last year's UK & Ireland Student of the Year was Rory Doherty from St Pius X College. Rory's participation in Sky Sports Living for Sport helped him grow into a confident young man who is now more engaged with both school and his peers, having previously struggled when socially interacting with others.

Rory was presented with his award by Sky Sports Living for Sport Ambassador Nick Dougherty during a brilliant day of celebrations in March 2015.

Don't miss your chance to nominate a student for the 2014/15 Student of the Year Award by clicking here - nominations close at 9am on 15 January 2016.

Sky Sports Living for Sport has been running in partnership with the Youth Sport Trust since 2003.
