City Vision, in partnership with Let’s Play Siyadlala, will from this month onward run a sports star of the month competition where primary and secondary schools will recognise their best talents by nominating them.

SuperSport Western Cape media liaison officer Eduard Rosentrauch said the initiative is aimed to give recognition to learners who excel in sport.

“Play, physical education and sport are foundational to the holistic development of children and an initiative of this nature contributes to a healthier community and encourages sports activity,” said Eduard. A visibly excited City Vision editor Voox ka Sonandzi said he has been “dreaming about a way of honouring young sports people for a very long time.

“I am thrilled that we are now part of Siyadlala Let’s Play family and I am sure sport coaches at schools will grab this opportunity,” said Voox.

All sporting codes will be considered. Coaches or teachers have to simply nominate their best talent and write us a few lines detailing why he or she deserves to be the “bosso”.

Each monthly winner will receive a gift package worth R500, a certificate and will be automatically entered in the City Vision Let’s Play Siyadlala Sports Awards of the year to be held later in the year.

Start encouraging your children by nominating them by email or fax.
