The ASAA is proud to recognize the teacher-coaches, student-athletes, and volunteers who help to make education through school sport a reality.”  Soruce:

About Zone Award of Merit

In 2002, the first Zone Awards of Merit were presented to six recipients from five zones for outstanding contributions to their zone. Zone secretaries, in consultation with members of the zones, nominate deserving individuals for this award. A presentation is made to each recipient during the evening banquet held in conjunction with the Annual Planning Meeting in December each year.
