Each year, the NAB AFLW season culminates with the W Awards, where the league recognises their 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 vote, by a panel of experts.
