Awards & Recognition

League awards are intended as recognition of the achievements of both schools and individuals rather than as rewards for participation.  It is hoped that this recognition will stimulate interest and participation in the League program, but the emphasis is upon the values in achievement rather than upon the values of the awards themselves.

Types of awards are as follows:

School Awards - For presentation to those schools whose teams or individual contestants win championships and second place (if selected) in events.

Individual Awards - For presentation to individual contestants who win specified places in state competition and to members of teams in specified activities whose schools receive trophies for first or second place in state competition.

Academic Excellence Awards - The League has established a VHSL Academic Excellence Awards program in order to recognize individual participants in VHSL activities who excel in the classroom.

Special Recognition - For recognition of outstanding service to the League by individuals and institutions.

For more information, see the list of awards to the right, or contact the VHSL office at 434-977-8475.
