National STUDENT-Athlete Day was created to celebrate the outstanding achievements of high school and college student-athletes. Those student-athletes who are honored have achieved at least a 3.0 GPA and have been involved in community service. While the celebration is held annually on April 6th, events take place throughout the entire month. Official National STUDENT-Athlete Giant Steps Award certificates are available at no cost. Visit our website at www.sportandsocialjustice.org for additional information.
Giant Steps honorees are chosen in conjunction with National STUDENT-Athlete Day. These national awards are given in the categories of courageous student-athletes, coaches, barrier breakers, civic leaders, and heroes among us.
