 The SportMalta Awards– L-Għazliet Sportivi Nazzjonali 2010 was more than an awards ceremony, it was a vehicle to reach out to youths and students and bring sport and its message closer to them. This was successfully achieved as over 20 schools were included in a Roadshow program which resulted in over 4000 students coming into direct contact with the athletes; a novel approach which boosted their self esteem and as role models they encouraged youngsters directly to take up sport.  In addition, three pre-events were also organised including a mega event at Cottonera Sports Complex, Junior College and Bay Street. Six media events linked with the show were also organised in addition to 34 TV slots in sports programs, host shows, and specialised programs and over 1170 promo spots on TV and radio was given. In excess of 16 hours of TV coverage was given to the objective of instilling more awareness for sport and the achievements of local athletes.

These awards have successfully managed to create an event which has extended beyound the actual awards night.  It is clear that this activity will be remembered as the event that put local athletes in the forefront which involved them with numerous of students and the general public directly.
