NOA OFFICIAL OF THE YEAR

N.O.A.  OFFICIAL  OF  THE  YEAR

The N. O. A. Board of Directors established a special award for the "Official of the Year" in each of the major sports that the N.O.A. sponsors.  This award is presented for accomplishments an official achieves during the past season and is not intended to be a "Lifetime" award. 

Members are aware of the many great accomplishments of our veteran colleagues who have set the examples and goals we all strive for and know they are proud of those accomplishments.  The criteria established for the "Official of the Year" award, though, is only intended to address the success of an official during the past season.  A committee consisting of sport presidents, representatives, assignment chairmen, and general members agreed to the criteria.  The recipient of the award is the N.O.A. official who best fulfills the following criteria.
