Former AAU President Honored with Memorial Award

Former AAU President Honored with Memorial Award

John "Jack" Kelly was the AAU President from 1970-71. Check out the article below from Cynthia E. Stinger, Manager, U.S. Olympians & Paralympians Association, on how YOU can apply for this coveted award. 

The Jack Kelly Fair Play Award was established by the United States Olympic Committee in 1985 to honor the late USOC President Jack Kelly Jr. The award is presented to an athlete, team, coach or official in recognition of an outstanding act of fair play and sportsmanship displayed during the past year.

Fair play can be described as an athlete who is dedicated to playing fair, obeying the rules and upholding the spirit of the game. Sportsmanship is demonstrating gracious behavior before, during and after competition.

Nominees are now being sought for this distinguished honor, which will be officially presented during the 2015 U.S. Olympic and Paralympic Assembly in Colorado Springs, Colo., on Sept. 24-25. Please use the attached form to nominate a deserving individual from your organization for this award.  Nomination deadline is Monday, June 8, 2015.
