Character Athlete Award nominations due May 12

Apr 25, 2014 | Uncategorized

Twice a year, OFSAA awards the Character Athlete Award to two recipients (one male, one female) who embody OFSAA’s values of leadership, commitment, equity, respect and sportsmanship. 

OFSAA’s Character Athlete Award winners in the Fall of 2013 were Jared Salmond and Madison Whittet.

The Character Athletes will be profiled in our Bulletin magazine, on our website, and in our eNewsletter. They will also receive a plaque from OFSAA to commemorate this accomplishment.

Winter/ Spring OFSAA Character Athlete nominations are due Monday, May 12

To nominate one of your student-athletes for the Character Athlete Award, please fill out the application form and fax or email it to:

Devin Gray, OFSAA Communications Coordinator
[email protected]
Fax: 416-426-7317

Please include as much information as possible about your student-athlete.  Specifically their school and community involvement, and how they exemplify OFSAA’s values.
