2015 USATF Ohio Association Official of the Year was awarded to Duane Shaul by Karen Krsak, Awards Chair.
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 below.
Ohio Association Members,
We want to give our members the recognition they deserve as they work hard to make our association one of the best in the country.
Please take a few minutes to review the list for this year's awards and when you see them, please thank them for their service to the Ohio Association.
Doesn't matter if they are an athlete, official or someone who just takes that extra moment to give our association.
