The NAGWS Pathfinder Awards were established in 1991 to provide national recognition to women who have demonstrated continuous dedication to the advocacy, recruitment, and enhancement of girls and women in sports and sport leadership in their states. Each state association represented in AAHPERD has the opportunity to select a recipient to be recognized nationally as a Pathfinder.
Since the inception of the award, over 575 women have been named NAGWS Pathfinders. This auspicious award continues to honor women who have dedicated their lives to girls and women in sport. These founding mothers have created change and have witnessed the fruition of their efforts in the continuing growth of opportunities for women in sport.
Must be someone who has made a significant contribution to girls and women in sport in her state as determined by state leaders.
The deadline for submission of the 2013 award recipients is November 1, 2012. Once the award recipient has been selected within her state, all nominating materials (numbers 1 through 4 above) should be sent to:
NAGWS Pathfinder Awards Committee
1900 Association Dr.
Reston, VA 20191
Each state recipient will receive the Pathfinder Award during the NAGWS Rachel Bryant Lecture and Awards Session at the annual AAHPERD National Convention. If a Pathfinder recipient cannot attend the Awards Session, she may designate someone to accept the award for her. If that is not possible, the award will be mailed to her following the convention.
