Well-rounded group represents Nevada's very best

Nevada Interscholastic Activities Association (NIAA) and One Nevada Credit Union awarded $20,000 in scholarship funds to Nevada student-athletes for the NIAA / One Nevada Top Ten Student-Athletes of the Year Awards.

The Top Ten Student-Athletes of the Year award is given to the Silver State's top high school athletes who exemplify total school and community involvement.

The annual northern Nevada and southern Nevada awards banquets have been canceled due to COVID-19, but the winners will still be presented with a $1,000 scholarship, a commemorative program, and a special gift to help them as they further their education.

"We're proud to celebrate these student-athletes for their outstanding achievements," said Paul Parrish, One Nevada President and CEO. "It's profoundly unfortunate that many student-athletes missed out on their sports seasons during the pandemic. Still, we're inspired by their perseverance to get back in the game and their commitment to being outstanding students while giving back to their communities. That's why we're so pleased to award each of them a college scholarship and special gift in support of their education journey."

Each school is requested to submit student-athlete applications. All candidates must be seniors. The general categories of consideration include:

  • Scholastic Achievement
    (Class rank, grade point averages, number of semesters on the honor roll, number of honors/AP classes taken and ACT/SAT scores)
  • Overall Sports Participation
    (Number of varsity sports, number of varsity letters and individual and team athletic achievements)
  • Other Contributions
    (School activities and community service accomplishments)
  • A student essay
  • Letters of recommendation

The Top Ten Student-Athletes of the Year in both Northern and Southern Nevada, as selected by a panel of judges, are then honored and recognized with a $1,000 scholarship from the NIAA and One Nevada Credit Union.
