About This Award

This program recognizes outstanding achievement in the classroom. The boys and girls team in each OSAA-sanctioned activity with the highest team grade point average (G.P.A.) earns the Academic All-State Award. Each member of a winning team receives a much-coveted sweatshirt, commemorative pin and a certificate. The school receives a plaque in honor of its team. Members of top ten schools in each activity at each classification are also recognized with a commemorative pin.

The Oregonian Cup



Sponsored by The Oregonian, the Northwest's largest daily circulation newspaper

About This Award

The Oregonian Cup began in 1999 as a way to recognize overall excellence by schools in academics, activities and athletics. The Oregonian began sponsoring the award in February 2002. The award honors a school's students, teachers, coaches and the entire school community.

Schools earn points based on their participation and finish in OSAA State Championships and for Top 10 finishes in the OSAA Academic All-State Program, sponsored by the Dairy Farmers of Oregon. A sportsmanship component, whereby schools are awarded points each season for having no ejections, is included as well. The points are updated and released at the end of Fall and Winter seasons and totaled at the end of the year. The school earning the highest points in each classification receives a commemorative trophy from The Oregonian and the OSAA.

Oregonian Cup Point System

The Oregonian Cup recognizes overall school excellence in academics, activities, athletics and sportsmanship. The guiding force behind these point breakdowns is that every school that has a team or individual qualify for our state championships deserves point recognition. The amount of points is meant to be equitable across all activities with differences based on the number of teams and/or individuals participating. Teams that win a state championship will earn the same points regardless of the activity.

Academics

Schools receive points for having teams participate in the Dairy Farmers of Oregon Academic All-State program. Schools receive 25 points for a team with a 3.0+ average but not in the Top 10. Schools with teams in the Top 10 in an activity receive points using the scoring breakdown listed above. The overall winner in an activity receives 200 points. Schools with teams that finish atop a classification but not overall receive 175 points. Ties for the overall winner or first place in a classification are awarded the same points. All other ties are split between the places. 50% of all academic points earned will be counted toward the final Oregonian Cup standings.

Sportsmanship

A sportsmanship component was added to the calculations in 2001-2002. Schools receive 200 points per season (Fall, Winter, Spring) for having no ejections. 100 points is subtracted from a school's total for each varsity ejection of a player or coach (regardless if the ejection is appealed.)

Individuals in Individual Activities

Each individual who qualifies for the state championships in Cross Country, Swimming, Wrestling, Speech, Solo Music, Golf, Tennis, and Track & Field receives an automatic 10 points for his/her school, up to a maximum of 25 points for a school in an activity. Relay teams in Swimming and Track & Field get 10 points total, not 10 per relay member. Individual participants in Golf and Cross Country can earn additional points for a high finish, (30% of what a team would earn for that place in that event.) For example, an individual placing first in a golf championship receives 60 points for his/her school (60 points is 30% of 200 points.)

Leveling the Playing Field

Fall Winter Spring
6A 10 24 42
5A 10 24 40
4A 9 21 36
3A 7 15 24
2A 6 12 21
1A 4 10 12

Similar to scoring systems in other states, we don't want the winning school to just be the school that offers the most activities. For this reason we limit the number of events for which a school can earn points each season (Fall, Winter, and Spring). Once a school has reached the maximum number of events in a particular season, we delete the events in which they scored the least amount of points to reach the maximum number. Limits vary by classification as many schools in lower classifications don't offer every activity. For example a 5A school earning points in 12 different activities in the Fall will have its two lowest point totals dropped for that season. Dropped points from one season can be applied to another season up to the maximum number of activities.

OSAA Foundation Scholar Program

Seniors who have achieved a 3.50 or higher cumulative GPA and earned a varsity letter in an OSAA-sanctioned sport (Scholar Athletes) or competed in an OSAA-sanctioned activity (Activity Scholars) are eligible. Each senior receives a certificate of achievement from the OSAA. Graduating seniors who earned varsity letters or participated in activities during freshman, sophomore or junior years, but not during senior year, are still eligible.

OSAA-sanctioned sports: Cross Country, Volleyball, Soccer, Football, Wrestling, Swimming, Basketball, Golf, Tennis, Track & Field, Baseball and Softball

Frequently Asked Questions

Can a student earn both a Scholar Athlete and an Activity Scholar certificate?

About This Award

The third annual Sportsmanship Award is to be awarded in the spring of 2015. All member schools are eligible for this award and are subject to review by the schools in their regular districts.

Each regular district is to submit one member high school as their sportsmanship award winner to the OSAA by 4 p.m., Friday, May 1, 2015. It is up to each regular district to select the school that best exemplifies what sportsmanship means and to represent their district. All regular district winners will be recognized on the OSAA website.

The OSAA Sportsmanship Award will be given to one school in each classification. The overall winner in each classification will receive a Sportsmanship Banner to hang in their school and a $1,000 award from the OSAA.

Regular Districts may base their selection on their own criteria, or on the criteria set-forth in the OSAA Sportsmanship Award Nomination Form, while also referencing the general expectations in the Spectator Conduct policy. Once the district recipient reaches the final round they will fall subject to the following criteria in order to determine the classification winner.

Officials will have the opportunity to provide feedback for the Sportsmanship Award by using the OSAA Sportsmanship Nomination Form. Officials are encouraged to provide feedback in regards to all positive experiences they have officiating.

The Sportsmanship Review Committee (OADA Executive Board, along with a representative from the OSAA staff and the OAOA Executive Board) will review all Regular District winners submitted. It is up to the Committee to determine classification winners. Note that if a member of the Committee has a conflict of interest, they will remove themselves from the selection process for that particular classification.

Primary OSAA Sportsmanship Award Criteria

  • Exemplary behavior by the students, coaches, administrators, fans, parents, and community at OSAA events.
  • Administrators' ability to enforce the Spectator Conduct policy.
  • Number and type of unsportsmanlike ejections. Please note: If a school has a coach who was ejected for unsportsmanlike conduct during the 2014-15 school year, that school may not be eligible for this award. Multiple athlete ejections from one school during the 2014-15 school year may eliminate said school from receiving this award as well. This will be to the discretion of the selection committee.
  • League feedback.
  • Number of nominations submitted for a particular school-within their regular district and outside of their regular district. NOTE: A school may not nominate themselves.
  • Sportsmanship Nomination Forms submitted by OAOA.

The OSAA is excited to honor those schools that exhibit exemplary sportsmanship throughout the year. Help the OSAA honor those commendable schools through the OSAA Sportsmanship Award.

Nomination Form

Any school may nominate another school at any time during the year for the Sportsmanship Award. Reminder, no school may nominate themselves. Schools are especially encouraged to nominate schools that fall outside of their Regular District. If a parent, fan, or community member would like to fill out a Nomination Form they may do so but must obtain a signature from an administrator of their respective school in order for the form to be validated and used in the review process. Again, a parent, fan, or community member may not nominate their respective school.

To nominate a school for the OSAA Sportsmanship Award, simply complete the following form and submit to Marci McGillivray, Associate Director, marcim@osaa.org.
