Dear MIAA Principals, Athletic Directors and Ice Hockey Coaches,
The Boston Bruins and MIAA, in partnership through the Sportsmanship Alliance of Massachusetts, are pleased to announce that the presentation of this year's Boston Bruins-MIAA Sportsmanship Awards will take place at the TD Garden on Tuesday, April 4, 2017.
For the past fourteen years, the MIAA and Boston Bruins have partnered to honor one student-athlete from each boys and girls high school ice hockey league in the state for best demonstrating a commitment to the ideals of sportsmanship in their conduct on and off the ice.
Each boys and girls ice hockey league is asked to coordinate a selection process to determine the student-athlete that best meets the award criteria described in the selection form (click here for the form). This student-athlete will serve as your league’s award recipient. After selecting the award recipient, his or her information must be submitted on the award selection form and sent to psmith AT miaa DOT net (email) or 508-541-9888 (fax) no later than Wednesday, March 15, 2017.
Each league award recipient will receive two tickets to attend the Boston Bruins game against the Tampa Bay Lightning on Tuesday, April 4. At this game, award recipients will be honored during a special ceremony between periods of the Bruins game. Further information about the ceremony will be communicated directly to the student-athletes being honored that night.
On behalf of the MIAA and the Boston Bruins, we thank you for your assistance in recognizing and promoting sportsmanship in Massachusetts high school ice hockey. Your efforts are greatly appreciated and we look forward to receiving the information about your league honoree.
