Last year the participation rate was okay, but not great.
Boys=60 of 83 (72%)
Girls=16 of 28 (57%)
There is NO reason that we can't get close to 100% for this wonderful award. Also, the award is a GREAT item on a college application or down the road, a job resume.
Please, take the time to nominate a player on your team!!
The 19/20 hockey season will be the 15th year of awarding the Hobey Baker Character Award in the state of Wisconsin. Thank you for the great support over the past 14 years.
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. (See Exhibit A)
Each varsity high school hockey head coach should follow the process outlined per Exhibit B, with each coach selecting the member of their 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 (Exhibit C).
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
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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
