NWDAB Media Service Award Winners

MEDIA SERVICE AWARD

The Ohio High School Athletic Association’s Sportsmanship, Ethics and Integrity Program was formed in 1994, and was charged with developing an awareness of the need for sportsmanship, ethics and integrity in the schools of Ohio. An important project of the committee is to present awards to schools, student-athletes, administrators, coaches and others who reflect this standard. Awards are also presented to media members in each of the six athletic districts across the state. The media awards are presented to thank you for your contributions to and coverage of high school athletics, and to also say thank you for “Respecting the Game” by upholding the standards of sportsmanship, ethics and integrity.
