Earlier this year, the National Council of Youth Sports (NCYS) issued a call for nominations for its 2nd Annual STRIVE Organization of the Year Award, sponsored exclusively by AIG. The STRIVE Award recognizes youth organizations that have distinguished themselves by implementing outstanding and valuable health and safety initiatives.
Through its aHead of the Game® (AOTG) advocacy campaign, AIG is focused on helping reduce the risks of concussions and other head injuries in youth sports. Through its relationship with the NCYS, AIG has supported initiatives to help keep kids safe and promote safe and healthy participation in youth athletics. The STRIVE Organization of the Year Award is aligned with these objectives, and AIG is proud to be its exclusive sponsor.
From May 15 to July 28, the NCYS collected more than 50 nominations from youth organizations across the United States. The STRIVE judging committee, comprised of youth sport industry influencers and safety experts, narrowed the field of dedicated, deserving nominees to the 2103 ‘5 for STRIVE’ finalists. You can help select the winning organization by casting a vote on the STRIVE Organization of the Year award website. Voting has begun and will run until midnight on September 30th.
