The annual University of Waikato Blues Awards (Blues) are one of Waikato University’s strongest traditions, recognising our students' highest sporting and artistic achievements.
At the University of Waikato we hold strong to the belief that people are central to the success of the University. The Blues are one of our biggest celebrations of success in sports and the arts. Our first Blues were awarded in 1971, with the tradition of the Creative and Performing Arts Blue joining the Sports Blue in 1990.
There are awards for individual and team achievements, emerging talent, and for service to sports or the arts.
