The Arizona Interscholastic Association and Cox Communications are looking for a few Everyday Heroes who promote character building through interscholastic sports.
Nominations are being taken for coach, official, administrator, AIA student, scholar-athlete and scholar-activity participant of the year. Cox’s Technology in Education and Blue Cup awards will also be given May 23 at the seventh Everyday Heroes award show in Phoenix.
The awards are aimed at those who promote interscholastic achievement, sportsmanship and healthy lifestyles, according to a Cox news release.
“Each year we receive more entries than ever before and are in awe of the incredible ways that these role models contribute to our communities,” Cox Vice President Lisa Lovello said in the release.
The nomination deadline is Friday for athletes and March 6 for coaches and administrators. For more information or to download nomination forms, see the AIA Web site at www.aiaonline.org.
