NADIIIAA/JOSTENS Community Service Awards


Each of the selected institutions and conferences are recognized for the impressive community service projects performed by its student-athletes during the year. The awards program, established in 2001, is co-sponsored by the NADIIIAA and Jostens and is intended to recognize the many contributions Division III student-athletes regularly make to their campuses and local communities. Recognition is given for projects in three categories: One-Time Projects, An Array of Projects, and Ongoing Projects.

In addition to presenting commemorative trophies to the three winning institutions, NADIIIAA and Jostens will make a $1,000 contribution to the general scholarship fund at each of these institutions.

The awards are presented during the NADIIIAA Reception held in conjunction with the NCAA Convention annually.

The company’s products include yearbooks, class rings, graduation products, school photography, employee and achievement awards, and products for athletics departments and their fans.
