USATF OHIO ASSOCIATION OUTSTANDING OFFICIAL AWARD

One of our association members put forth a proposal to create an award that would be created to recognize an outstanding official for the Ohio Association.

The Ohio Association Awards Committee took the proposal, created criteria and an application for this award. The committee then took the proposal to the executive committee and general meeting in September of 2015 for discussion, changes and adoption of the proposal.

Final changes were made and you can now find the criteria and application on the website.
