The committee will present their recommendation for the award recipient, from the pool of nominations, to the MSHA Board of Directors. The Board of Directors will confirm the recommendation, and the award winner will be announced during the annual MSHA banquet.
The awardee receives a one-time, $500 maximum reimbursement for handball related expenses within two years of receiving the award. No limitations on what qualifies – this is up to the individual since they were selected, in part, based on their displayed character and we trust them make their request within the traits named in the award.
