“I congratulate Gracie and all of the recipients of these sporting grants,” Mr Dreyfus said.

 

“It is a remarkable achievement to be selected to travel interstate to compete in a sporting championship and each of these young athletes should be very proud of their hard work and achievement.

 

“I’m very pleased to be able to present this award to Gracie to recognise her determination and love of sport.

 

“Cindy representing Victoria in the National Hockey Championship in Brisbane in October is a wonderful validation of her determination and hard work,” Mr Dreyfus said.

 

The Local Sporting Champions program is an Australian Government initiative designed to provide financial assistance for young people aged 12-18 towards the cost of travel, accommodation, uniforms or equipment when competing.

 

Individual applicants are able to apply for up to $500 in funding and teams are eligible for up to $3000.
