We need your help to identify youngsters who need a financial boost to make the most of their sporting talent.
Two winners from west Wiltshire towns will receive £500 each and two runners up will receive £100.
The winners are likely to be youngsters who have already stated to make their mark on their chosen sport but could do with a financial boost to help with coaching, kit or travelling costs to competitions.
You can nominate your own child, a pupil you teach or a youngster you coach but we will need to know why they need help and their achievements to date.
Any youngster up to the age of 16 can be nominated but they must not already be receiving a grant from the Lottery or their sporting body.
Bag4Sport Foundation raises money to help grass root sport and talented individuals reach their potential.
