The NSW Premier's Sporting Challenge medal gives schools an opportunity to acknowledge student commitment and contribution to sport and physical activity programs.

The medal is intended to acknowledge ONE student in each school* for their outstanding:

  • commitment to fair play
  • effort and improved performance in a sporting context (change of criteria)
  • contribution to the school’s weekly sport and physical activity programs.

The student most deserving of the PSC Medal always tries their very best, encourages other students and always seeks to wholeheartedly participates in school sport and/or physical activity programs.

It is not meant to replace existing school sport awards but, rather, recognises the student who enthusiastically joins in games and sporting events, always tries their best, offers encouragement to others or takes on responsibility for physical activity programs in the school.

The PSC Medal is not affiliated with the PSC 10 Week Challenge. Any student at the school can receive this medal, regardless of the school's participation in the Challenge. 

The PSC student medal will be distributed to schools in early Term 4 so that its presentation can be arranged to suit school calendars. If you wish to receive your school's medal during Term 3, please email

* SSP, Central and Community schools will receive two medals for a primary and a secondary student.

Please contact the PSC team as soon as possible if you believe you have not received your PSC medal/s. Replacement medals will be available as long as stock lasts.
