Character Athlete Award

See " NEWS" on our homepage to find the full story on the accomplishments of 2021 recipients Zoe Gardiner and Emmanuel Adegboyega.

Once 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. Nominations for students in all grades will be accepted. Nominations must be for student-athletes who competed in an individual or team high school sport. Competing at an OFSAA event is not a prerequisite.

The Character Athletes will be profiled in our Bulletin magazine, on our website, and in our seasonal E-Newsletter. They will also receive a $1000 grant from Jostens, and a commemorative plaque from OFSAA to recognize this accomplishment.

OFSAA Character Athlete nominations are due Friday, April 30, 2021.

To nominate one of your student-athletes for the Character Athlete Award, please fill out the application form and submit it online.

Direct any questions to;

Pat Park, OFSAA Communications Coordinator
[email protected]

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