2021 Triple-Impact Competitor® Scholarship Winners Announced


Positive Coaching Alliance is especially proud to announce the winners of the 2021 Triple-Impact Competitor® Scholarship in a year that presented many challenges and lots of adversity. These student-athletes shared how they positively impacted sport on three levels: by making themselves, their teammates, and their community better. However, even more significantly, they have done so while navigating a worldwide pandemic that often put a complete halt to the sports they love.

Many of our applicants shared the resiliency, creativity and determination they used to get through the last few months of school and in many cases the complete shutdown of their sport mid-season. Hopefully, they're all enjoying a fun and competitive season right now!

We salute you, senior student-athletes, for your grit and perseverance as you’ve pivoted to use the many characteristics you gained through sports to help you get through these unprecedented times.

Congratulations, again, to all of our finalists onto naming our 2021 (class of ‘22) winners!

*Each winner will receive a minimum $1,000 scholarship to be paid in the spring of 2022 after required documents are received. (Scholarship amounts vary by region based on support from donors and award program sponsorships.) Winners, please stay tuned for an announcement regarding a national virtual award recognition event in your honor!

Winners are listed by territory. If you are uncertain of your territory, use the "find on page" function of your computer or phone and enter a scholarship applicant's name. For any questions, please email Program Administrator Jennie Wulbrun.
