NAB AFL Women's Rising Star

Congratulations Hannah Ewings, winner of the 2022 S7 NAB Rising Star Award

Each year, the NAB AFLW season culminates with the W Awards, where the League recognises its best and fairest.

The NAB AFL Women's Rising Star Award is the highest honour for a young footballer – they must be under 21, and not suspended during the season. The award is decided by a vote from a panel of experts.
