Sky Sports Living for Sport Awards

Chris Badger

To recognise the inspirational Students and Teachers who take part in the experience each year, we run the Sky Sports Living for Sport Awards.

In 2016, our Sky Academy Ambassadors visited England, Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland and Republic of Ireland to surprise a Student of the Year from each country – with each announcement broadcast on Sky Sports News HQ.

The Teacher of the Year and Project of the Year were also recognised by Thierry Henry and Jonny Wilkinson, respectively, during a whole summer of celebration.

You can watch the moment each of our winners were surprised below.
