The St Sebastian Fellowship Award is open to any individual who has been exceptionally meritorious and long standing in their involvement and support of ACC sport. Nominees can be employees of member schools, employees of the ACC or community officials engaged or contracted by the ACC or a member school to support ACC sport.
To be considered for nomination an individual must have contributed across numerous facets of the organisation (and been a strong contributor in each area), and have been significantly involved in the development of the organisation. It should be considered that the nominee has completed a minimum of fifteen (15) years service involvement with ACC sport or has made such a contribution as to be deemed ‘exceptional’.
The St Sebastian Fellowship Award can be retrospective and the award bestowed upon individuals who are retired and not currently employed or actively engaged in ACC activities and events. Years of active service prior to 2013, the year the awards were first introduced, can be counted towards the total service record. Service years can be cumulative across ACC schools/employers.
