The National Sportsmanship Awards honors athletes and personalities from around the nation for their integrity, class, selflessness, perseverance, kindness, community service and overall commitment to sportsmanship. The ceremonies are hosted by the St. Louis Sports Commission and the Citizenship Through Sports Alliance.
By recognizing outstanding individuals who set a high standard with their approach on and off the field, the organization hopes to set the tone for all to be good sports and to pass those values on to children in the community. It’s the Sports Commission’s goal to make St. Louis a model community for good sportsmanship and home to America’s best sports.
