Criteria For Encouragement Awards
The Encouragement Award was suggested by Robyne and Kevin Bamberry. It is awarded annually at the QMSA State Titles. The committee members present at a meeting prior to the Titles suggest suitable players and a secret ballot determines the winner. In the event of numerous nominations; an initial vote is taken and if there is no dominant winner; another vote is taken using only the top two or three vote holders. Guidelines while not specified; include player improvement and attitude.
