2016-2017 SAYSI High School Sportsmanship Award

In conjunction with the local High Schools in the Salina area, we are proud to announce that we have developed an award that will recognize deserving senior athletes from the local surrounding high schools who display great sportsmanship on and off the playing field.  The winners from each school will be given a custom award etched with their name and year that will be presented to them at their schools Academic Awards night at the end of the year; along with their names being forever etched on a plaque that will be displayed in the schools award display case.  

Below you will find a link to the award description and qualifications.  Nominees are determined by the coaches of each sport and they are submitted to the schools Athletic Director for review.  Once the nominees are narrowed down to three boys and three girls from each school, SAYSI's Executive Director will meet with the respective school's Athletic Director and select one boy and one girl from each school to receive the award. 

We are very excited about this new venture in sportsmanship recognition and we couldn't have made it happen without the help of the local High Schools and our sponsors!
