One Community Awards

Rugby League’s One Community recognises the many special individuals involved in Rugby League who dedicate their time both to the game and to their community.  This is achieved through the annual Ken Stephen Medal, Favourite Son Award and the end of season One Community awards.

Ken Stephen Medal presented by Telstra

The Telstra Ken Stephen Medal recognises the efforts of an NRL player, who has not only achieved on the field, but has also committed time off the field to community projects. Click here for more information on the Telstra Ken Stephen Medal and past winners.
