• DIAA is proud to provide leadership awards and development opportunities to student athletes during the year.
  • DIAA provides, upon request, “scholar-athlete” certificates for high school students who earn a varsity letter and maintain a 3.5 GPA during the competitive season. Certificates are also provided to middle school students who participate on an interscholastic team and maintain a grade of “B” or better in all subjects during the competitive season.
  • DIAA sponsors the annual Harry Roberts Senior Scholar-Athlete Awards. Member schools can select one male candidate and one female candidate who can apply for the awards. Members of the Sportsmanship Committee then review the applications and select a male and a female winner who receive a plaque and a $2,000 scholarship to the post-secondary institution of their choice.  Second and third place awards are also selected with the runner-up award receiving a plaque and a $1,500 scholarship to the post-secondary institution of their choice and a third place winner who receives a $1,000 scholarship to the post-secondary of their choice.
