Re: Hobey Baker High School Character Award
We are excited to continue the tradition of the Hobey Baker High School Character Award in the state of Wisconsin for 2013/14.
Eighty-one student-athletes were recognized with the Hobey Character award in 2013 throughout the state and in the last eight years, we have honored over 680 student-athletes. We ask for your continued support in 2013/14.
The goal of the “Hobey Baker High School Character Award” is to develop, recognize, and reward exemplary character and sportsmanship demonstrated by our high school hockey players. This high school level award is a natural extension of the prestigious Hobey Baker Memorial Award given to the nation’s top collegiate hockey player and sportsman.
Each varsity high school hockey head coach should select the member of his or her team who best exemplifies the characteristics of sportsmanship and character represented by the Hobey Baker Memorial Award. The program does not carry a cost but as a volunteer, non-profit organization, contributions are accepted and encouraged.
We believe the extension of the Hobey Baker Memorial Award to the high school level is a tremendous way to promote a lasting positive influence on the sport of hockey at the high school level. Winners will be recognized at individual team banquets, the state tournament program book, and on the WHCA and WiPH websites.
Thank you in advance for your assistance and efforts in making this a success. If you have any questions or comments, please feel free to email me at email@example.com.
