This prestigious accolade is testament to our unwavering commitment to identify, recognize, and reward exceptional student athletes who stand out not only in their sport, but also in academics and community service.

Why We Value This Award

We believe in the immense potential of young talent. We recognize that student athletes who excel in both their studies and their sport, while also making a significant impact in their communities, embody a truly holistic form of excellence. These individuals inspire others with their unwavering commitment, discipline, and dedication, and we aim to honor these traits through the NAT Young Achiever Award.

Who Can Nominate?

Nominations for the award are open to any coach, teacher, or other recognized educator or community leader who has observed firsthand the qualities of commitment, sporting achievement, academic excellence, and community service that we seek to acknowledge.

The Award

The recipient of the NAT Young Achiever Award will receive financial assistance for 12 months. This support aims to alleviate some of the financial challenges that often accompany the pursuit of both academic and athletic excellence, allowing the recipient to focus on what they do best.

Moreover, the recipient will gain exposure through our NAT Global Campus social media platforms. By showcasing their journey and achievements, we hope to inspire others to strive for similar levels of excellence.

Celebrating Our 2023 Recipient

Reflecting on the success of this year’s recipient, Jenna McCarlie, we are reminded of the extraordinary potential that exists within our young student athletes. A 20-year-old dental student at Queen's University in Ireland, Jenna displayed exemplary dedication to her sport – playing for the university and Ireland's U21 hockey teams – her academics, and her community. We look forward to witnessing the continued success of Jenna and are eager to discover who will follow in her footsteps in 2024.

We invite you to join us in this exciting search for the next NAT Young Achiever. Let's recognize and reward our deserving student athletes together.
