THE AWARD SELECTION PROCESS
Once submitted, applications will be forwarded to The M Award Executive Committee (the "Judges"), which may include but is not limited to, The M Foundation's Executive Director and participating elite athletes affiliated with The M Foundation. The weighting for the judging criteria will include: outstanding community service, demonstrated athletic leadership, and commitment to healthy athletic performance. Winners will be selected by a point-tally vote of the judges.
Once our athlete-judges select winners, the selection team will allow up to one week to validate the applicant information before notification. Winners are then notified and awards are distributed.
*******Note that The Gold and Silver M Award winners may require supplemental application information, including a signed and notarized Affidavit.
