Sport award nominations sought from Midlothian

The deadline for entries for the Sky Sports Living for Sport Student and Teacher of the Year 2011 awards have been extended until Friday, July 22, to accommodate a surge in entries.

With more than 1000 schools registered for Sky Sports Living for Sport, delivered in partnership with the Youth Sport Trust, the awards are a celebration of the successful way secondary schools are using sport to inspire young people.

Entries are open to all secondary school students and teachers who have participated in or run a Sky Sports Living for Sport project this academic year.

Olympic gold medal winning sprinter and Sky Sports Living for Sport Ambassador, Darren Campbell, will lead the judging panel once more to help decide the twelve regional finalists who will be invited to the UK Awards ceremony at a major sporting venue next January, where an overall UK winner will be crowned.
