The SIJHSAA along with Baysinger Architechts, is pleased to announce the opening of 2020-2021 nominations for the Jim Burnes Leadership Award.
The SIJHSAA is one of two organizations in Illinois that sponsor junior high athletics. The SIJHSAA is made of over 180 schools throughout Southern Illinois and is divided up in to 10 geographical regions.
This award, for 8th graders only, will be based on the following criteria: GPA, sports participation, community activities, specific honors, a typed essay, and recommendations from inside the school and community. Please be sure to look over the criteria and dates that are on the forms.
Each school will get to nominate one person. This person will be nominated by the school athletic director. This person will also be the winner of the leadership award for their school and will receive a certificate from the SIJHSAA proclaiming them the Leadership Award winner from their school. The winner of this award will then proceed on to the regional level where the winner of the regional level will be honored with a plaque and a luncheon honoring their accomplishments.
