Halberg awards

The Halberg awards (currently branded the Westpac Halberg awards) are a set of awards given annually recognising New Zealand's top sporting achievements.

The annual award was started in 1949 by NZ Sportsman magazine founder Jack Fairburn. The original inscription on the trophy was Fairburn’s words: "The New Zealand Sportsman’s Trophy to be awarded annually to the New Zealand athlete whose personal performances or example, has had the most beneficial effect on the advancement of sport in the country". Awarding of the New Zealand Sportsman’s Trophy ceased along with publication of NZ Sportsman in 1960.

The trophy was restarted by the Halberg Disability Sport Foundation (named for athlete Sir Murray Halberg), which amended the wording of the inscription in line with the manner in which it granted the Award. The Awards are presented at a dinner which traditionally rotates between the New Zealand cities of Dunedin, Christchurch, Wellington and Auckland, and which in recent years has been broadcast live on television. The award was expanded to include Westpac New Zealand Sportswoman of the year, Westpac New Zealand Team of the year, Sky Sport Coach of the year, Westpac Emerging Talent and Halberg Disability Sport Foundation Disabled Sportsperson of the Year awards, as well as the Lion Foundation Lifetime Achievement Award, the Sport New Zealand Leadership Award and an award for New Zealand's Favourite Sporting Moment. The award was eventually renamed in Murray Halberg's honour, and since then the supreme award has been known as the Halberg award.

The Awards help the Halberg Disability Sport Foundation to raise funds, which are then used to enhance the lives of physically disabled young people, their families and communities, by enabling them to participate in sport.
