Elliott nominated for Ken Stephen Medal

Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs forward Adam Elliott has been nominated for the 2019 Ken Stephen Medal for his contribution to the local community.

Elliott joins James Tedesco, Josh Addo-Carr, Gavin Cooper, Connor Watson and Sia Soliola as some of the game’s biggest names to be nominated by their clubs for the 2019 Ken Stephen Medal.

The Ken Stephen Medal recognises the efforts of an NRL player who has not only achieved on the field, but has committed time off the field to community projects.

This year is the 31st instance that the Ken Stephen Medal has been awarded, with a host of worthy recipients receiving this prestigious award since Wayne Pearce won the inaugural medal in 1988, including Ryan James, Joel Thompson, Jonathan Thurston and Nathan Hindmarsh.

The 2019 Ken Stephen Medallist will be announced during Grand Final week, with voting now open on NRL.com providing fans the opportunity to select the nominee they feel deserves to be a finalist. The player with the highest number of votes will be included as one of four finalists announced next month.

The 2019 Ken Stephen Medal is proudly supported by wealth, property and well-being consultancy, One Solutions. 

Fan voting is open on the NRL’s community page on NRL.com through to 9:00am on Monday 19 August.
