One of the major requirements to receive the award is for the school athletic program to be disqualification free, meaning that not one student athlete or coach was disqualified from any athletic event held during last school year. The schools receiving the Sportsmanship Awards were ejection and disqualification free for all three sports seasons in 2012-2013.
Schools receiving the Sportsmanship Award are voted upon by their peers.
"This is a great honor and the result of hard work on the part of our coaches, student/athletes, and parents,” said Athletic Director Rich Porfido. “The recognition of our athletes, coaches and fans is a reflection of the sportsmanship we strive to achieve in our athletic programs."
The NJSIAA comprises 433 accredited, public, private and parochial high schools in the state.
