Sportsmanship Awards Program

In the spring of 2007, the Maine Principals' Association inaugurated its annual Sportsmanship Awards Program. The program is designed to foster sportsmanship in interscholastic activities by publicizing the examples of sportsmanship that are displayed by Maine's high school competitors. Nominations will be accepted during the school year through May 17, 2013 and the awards presented by members of the Sportsmanship Committee to the winners at appropriate end-of-the-year local school banquets or assemblies. Schools may find the criteria and application form below.

Downloadable sportsmanship pamphlet now available.

The Maine Principals' Association Sportsmanship Committee has developed a pamphlet that schools may use in their sportsmanship programs. The pamphlet is located at for fans.pdf and may be downloaded by schools that wish to hand it out to parents, students, and fans. There is a place on the front of the brochure for a school's name and logo. It is hoped that this resource will be used by schools to help curb some of the unacceptable behaviors that some people exhibit at interscholastic contests. The Sportsmanship Committee welcomes feedback on this endeavor and suggestions for other projects. The contact person for the committee is Gerald Durgin.

The 2011 Maine Principal Study survey was distributed electronically, and several items were dropped because they had not yielded particularly useful information during previous administrations. This latest survey revealed some interesting trends. To view the 2011 survey, click here.
