Champion Australian marathon runner and Commonwealth Games gold medallist, Steve Moneghetti AM, facilitated the awards ceremony attended by 200 guests. 2022 Commonwealth Games bronze medallist, Abbey Caldwell, presented award recipients with their awards.

Among the 41 award recipients were Nicholas Lum from Virtual School Victoria, who achieved number 1 position in the 2022 Under 17 table tennis world rankings. Shih-Yuan Lim from Serpell Primary School was also recognised as the youngest player in the 2022 Under 15 National Badminton Championships.
