Minds In Motion
The certificates for this scholar-athlete honor roll award are provided by the MPSSAA to every school on request. Certificates are to be distributed following each of the three sports seasons by high school athletic departments to those student-athletes who achieve a 3.25 GPA, or higher, while participating in a school sponsored sport.
In addition, the MPSSAA conducts an annual Minds In Motion Scholar-Athlete Scholarship program which has been sponsored by The Allstate Foundation since its' inception in 2008 and recognizes those who have excelled on the playing field and in the classroom. Applicants must have a minimum 3.25 unweighted overall GPA and have participated in interscholastic athletic activities sponsored by MPSSAA during their high school careers. Selected male and female recipients receive a $1,000 scholarship and are honored at a luncheon at M&T Bank Stadium in late May/early June. For 2017, each of the nine MPSSAA districts will have at least one recipient selected along with "at-large" selections up to a total of 12-14 recipients.
