Cav-E Awards Nominations

Canterbury High School recognizes student athletes who play with passion, who rise to the occasion, who demonstrate persistence, who have a positive attitude and who exemplify integrity in all things.

That's why we created the Cav-E Awards. Each year, we accept nominations for all High School student athletes, regardless of sport or sport level. At the end of the year, we present all nominations to a panel of judges – usually area minor league athletes, sports reports and alumni – who determine which student athletes receive the awards.

We welcome your nominations! You may nominate as many High School student athletes as you wish, and we ask that you please submit a new form for each nomination. Your submission in anonymous, but we ask for your name and email in case we need more information to determine Cav-E Award recipients.
