In an effort to recognize academic excellence coupled with athletic participation, the NYSPHSAA Inc. sponsors a scholar athlete award, based on a team concept of academic achievement, intended to be an incentive for all team members to raise their individual GPA to positively affect their team’s success.

Scholar Athlete teams must be a Varsity team, with the minimum team composite grade average of 90 percent, based on a designated number of team members for each sport. Each individual who qualifies for this award receives a recognition pin, and the school receives a certificate for display.
