About the Award
The CHARACTER COUNTS! Coach of the Year Award honors a worthy recipient who embodies the Six Pillars of Character: Trustworthiness, Respect, Responsibility, Fairness, Caring, and Citizenship. Rather than spotlight winning records and isolated acts of heroism or generosity, the award was conceived to recognize individuals whose coaching lives and achievements demonstrate an enduring commitment to teach, encourage, advocate, and model good character through their coaching career.
In recognition of this honor, a $1,000 cash award will be made in the name of the recipient to their respective athletic department. The winner will be recognized during the Boy's State Basketball Tournament in March.
Completed applications must be submitted 11:59pm on Tuesday, January 23, 2024.
