University of Canterbury Blues Awards

University of Canterbury Blues Awards are a celebration of students who have excelled in arts, sports and community engagement.

Since 1913 the University of Canterbury has been recognising and awarding students who excel in their chosen sport. Boxing, Tennis, Rugby, Mountain Biking, Lifesaving, Hockey, Netball, Triathlon, Volleyball, Cycling and Orienteering are only some of the sports that are eligible for University of Canterbury Blues.  Blues have been awarded for achieving a high level of sporting and academic standards and as such are named after the traditional sporting competitions between two original ‘Blues’, Oxford and Cambridge.

This year, we are expanding these awards to recognise students who have also excelled in the Arts and the Community. Think you've excelled in the arts or sports or made an impact to the community or know anyone that has? Submit your nominations today for the 2017 awards ceremony! The event will take place on Saturday 7th October.
