Preston Singer from Nicholls ACT, became the envy of all kids last night when he was announced as the tenth weekly nominee for the 2017 NAB AFL Auskicker of the Year competition.

The NAB AFL Auskicker of the Year competition calls for 2017 registered participants of the program to enter for the chance to become one of 22 weekly nominees.

Weekly nominees are announced during the Seven Network’s Friday night match broadcast, with six-year-old Preston being announced during the Round 10 2017 Toyota AFL Sir Doug Nicholls Indigenous Round match between Sydney and Hawthorn.

Preston, who plays at the Gungahlin Jets NAB AFL Auskick Centre, will have the once in a lifetime opportunity to present an AFL premiership player with their medal on Toyota AFL Grand Final Day.

He will join 21 other lucky NAB AFL Auskicker weekly nominees in Melbourne for an unforgettable experience that will also include walking in the parade and playing on the hallowed turf of the MCG at half-time on Grand Final day.

It only gets better for Geelong fan Preston, he now has the chance to be crowned the overall NAB AFL Auskicker of the Year which will be announced at an awards dinner in Melbourne during Grand Final Week.

The lucky 2017 NAB AFL Auskicker of the Year winner will receive $5,000 in a NAB Reward Saver Account and Geelong Football Club captain Joel Selwood as their personal footy mentor for 2018.

To join Preston and be in the running to win this incredible experience, parents and guardians can enter their 2017 registered NAB AFL Auskick participant into the NAB AFL Auskicker of the Year competition by uploading a short video featuring their Auskicker in action at home or in the backyard; kicking goals, commentating or taking a speccy.

In the video entry, Auskickers should also explain why they think they should be the 2017 NAB AFL Auskicker of the Year.

To enter the competition, parents and guardians of 2017 registered NAB AFL Auskick participants should visit (competition closes on Thursday 3rd August. AFL Authorisation Code: GFAFL 17/10).
