The judging panel which consisted of volunteers from the Dyslexia Community and our special guest judge Freelance Journalist Cat Rodie, have been overwhelmed by the entries again in 2017. The stories of your champions have been heartwarming and also inspiring. (Note: please see earlier blog in regards to Jackie French being unable to assist us with judging due to post surgery complications).

We thank you all for taking part again this year.

The Overall Champion this year is 9 Year Old Jack Kennedy who wins the Sailors with disABILITIES 'Sailing with Champions Prize'. 

Congratulations Jack! Your entry is fantastic. 

Jack will have the opportunity to take along his family and friends to a fantastic afternoon of sailing on the Sydney Harbour! Watch Jack's entry below!


While all entries were wonderful this entry from our Adults Category deserves special mention. Thank you to Eleanor for this wonderful song. We have been told that Eleanor has only performed it live once before as it is such a raw and emotional song that it has been too difficult to perform live again. This brought the judges to tears. 





All age category winners are listed below with the link to their entry! Congratulations to all who have won a prize and to those who have entered this year you are all champions.

Thank you for supporting our Campaign & Competition, it has been an absolute pleasure to work with you all on this.
