While the most tangible purpose of the program is to distribute approximately $1 million annually in scholarship money to 104 high achieving regional winners, awareness of the power of sport as a motivator for success is equally as important. Each spring at our Annual Awards Banquet, we call attention to students who exemplify the connection between academic success and athletic participation. With these amazing scholars as our best advocates, we look to businesses, industries and individuals to support their pursuits through their involvement in the program.
