AWARD NOMINATION FORM
All individual awards reflect the highest performance of a CSKLS member or supporter of the Health, Kinesiology, and Leisure Studies profession. These are the highest honors that our association can award. Please see the information below to nominate someone for the Distinguished Service Award, the Presidential Award or the Literary Award.
DISTINGUISHED SERVICE AWARD
The Distinguished Service Award honors a Christian who has provided extensive meritorious service inside and/or outside the CSKLS organization. The honoree is a person who is recognized as a leader in the Society and/or the CSKLS disciplines (kinesiology, leisure studies), who has worked to enhance and advance the goals of CSKLS and/or of the CSKLS disciplines, and has earned the respect of CSKLS members through extended dedication to the Society and/or the CSKLS disciplines. While significant contributions to the growth and support of CSKLS are important criteria in selecting the recipient, Christians who have not been involved in CSKLS but who have made outstanding contributions to the CSKLS disciplines will also be considered. As a spiritual leader, the honoree has consistently demonstrated a Christ-like heart in both personal and professional actions.
The Literary Award honors members of the Christian Society for Kinesiology and Leisure Studies (CSKLS) or non-members who have demonstrated the integration of faith writing into one of the disciplines represented in the Society. Incorporating Christian faith into a profession is recognized as a service to God and a blessing to our society. The honoree has produced writings that contribute to the advancement of kinesiology, leisure, sport, and wellness and also has met high professional standards. Christian beliefs and principles held by CSKLS have been confirmed through the author’s work.
The Presidential Award recognizes those who have displayed actions compatible with the mission of the Christian Society of Kinesiology, Leisure and Sport Studies (CSKLS). Honorees have made specific contributions that provide valuable support toward the goals of CSKLS. Either through long-term participation or as a first-time contributor, recipients have provided outstanding assistance that aids CSKLS in meeting its objectives. The current president of CSKLS awards this honor and it is open to members, non-members, groups, and organizations.
