TWO junior sports champions from Maryborough have won grants to take part in high-level competitions.

Hockey star Kaitlin Rosolen will go to the under-18 girls hockey competition, while Tinana's Jack Terry will go to the Queensland State Championships for bicycle motocross.

Federal Member for Wide Bay Warren Truss announced the successful applicants for the Australian Government's Local Sporting Champions program yesterday.

"I congratulate the winners and wish each competitor well in their event," he said.

Grants of $500 per individual and $3,000 per team are available for people aged between 12 and 18 years to help meet the costs of participating in those events, including travel, equipment, uniforms, and accommodation.
