Awards and Scholarship Info

Explanation of Awards and Scholarships Available to Central Ohio Athletic Directors:

OIAAA Athletic Administrator of The Year*

The purpose of this award is to give recognition to athletic administrators who exemplify the highest standards of their profession and who, through their influence on the lives of the young people under their direction, have made significant contributions to their schools and communities.  The candidate shall be an athletic administrator who is recognized in the community as an educational leader and who maintains athletics as an integral part of the total education program.  He/she shall administer an exemplary athletic program making full use of school and community resources and involving as many students as possible. Each District is permitted to nominate one person from their area, and the Executive Committee will choose one nominee as the Athletic Administrator of the Year.  The nominee must be a member of OIAAA and their local district by no later than October 31 during the school year in which they have been nominated.

OIAAA Hall of Fame Inductee*

 This honor is bestowed upon an active or retired athletic administrator in recognition of their special accomplishments and contributions at the local and/or state levels.  Length of service should not necessarily be a deciding factor when choosing a candidate for this honor.  Each District is permitted to select one individual and must forward a completed application to the Executive Committee.  If the nominee is an active athletic administrator, they must be a member of OIAAA, and their local district by no later than October 31 during the school year in which they have been nominated.  If the nominee is a retired athletic administrator, the OIAAA Treasurer or his designee must verify that the individual had been an OIAAA member at some point during their career.
