SHEETZ FAMILY AWARD OF EXCELLENCE

Sheetz.1

The Sheetz Family Award of Excellence was created to capture the great sporting moments that distinguish our athletes at the Summer Games. The award recognizes the athlete whose determination and effort can only be understood by the power of the human spirit to overcome obstacles and inspire greatness. The award distinguishes the athlete who may not win, but whose courage, sportsmanship, effort and determination is award winning. During Virtual Summer Games, the Sheetz Award will also recognize athletes who have exhibited kindness, compassion, and strength towards their fellow athletes in this time of uncertainty.

Please use the below form to nominate an athlete(s). Applications need to be submitted by Thursday, June 4th. Delegations/coaches can nominate more than one athlete. The successful athlete will be announced during our closing ceremonies on Sunday, June 14th.

If you have any issues with completing the online form or need to submit a completed copy of the downloadable form, please contact sopanews@specialolympicspa.org.
