The Blues and Gold Awards are annual events at Victoria University of Wellington that celebrate the successes of our clubs and student athletes.

Blues Awards

A University Blues Award is one of New Zealand’s most prestigious and long-standing awards that recognises a university student’s performance in representing their region and/or New Zealand at the pinnacle of their sport whilst successfully progressing their academic studies.
