The OSAA Cup began in 1999 as a way to recognize overall excellence by schools in academics, activities and athletics. The award honors a school's students, teachers, coaches and the entire school community. The Oregonian sponsored the cup from 2002-2017. The cup is currently sponsored by Pacific Office Automation as part of their increased focus on supporting Oregon's high school community.
Schools earn points based on their participation and finish in OSAA State Championships and for Top 10 finishes in the OnPoint Community Credit Union Academic All-State Program. 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 Pacific Office Automation and the OSAA.
The OSAA 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.
Schools receive points for having teams participate in the OnPoint Community Credit Union 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 OSAA Cup standings.
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.
|1st Place||200 Points|
|2nd Place||150 Points|
|3rd Place||140 Points|
|4th Place||120 Points|
|5th Place||110 Points|
|6th Place||100 Points|
|7th Place||90 Points|
|8th Place||80 Points|
|9th Place||75 Points|
|10th Place||70 Points|
|11th Place||65 Points|
|12th Place||60 Points|
|13th Place||50 Points|
|14th Place||45 Points|
|15th Place||40 Points|
|16th Place||35 Points|
|17th+ Place||25 Points|
|3rd-4th Places||130 Points|
|5th-8th Places||95 Points|
|7th-8th Places||85 Points|
|9th-16th Places||55 Points|
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.)
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.
The Moda Health Players of the Game and Athletes of the Meet are announced at the conclusion of each state championship event.
OnPoint Community Credit Union sponsors the Scholar Program, recognizing Scholar Athletes and Activity Scholars who are graduating seniors at OSAA member schools.
The Scholar Program recognizes graduating seniors who have achieved a 3.50 or higher unweighted cumulative GPA and earned a varsity letter in an OSAA-sanctioned sport or competed in an OSAA-sanctioned activity. Each qualifying, graduating senior receives a certificate of achievement from the OSAA and OnPoint Community Credit Union.
A student must meet all of the respective qualifications to receive a certificate for Scholar Athlete or Activity Scholar. Graduating seniors who earned varsity letters or competed in activities during freshman, sophomore, or junior years, but not during senior year are still eligible for the Scholar Program and can receive a certificate.
All graduating seniors in the Scholar Program are eligible to apply for one of six college scholarships - one winner will receive a $2,500 scholarship and five winners will each receive a $1,000 scholarship. Winners will be selected based on success in the classroom, leadership in the community, a letter of recommendation, and an essay on how participating in OSAA activities has either taught them a lesson or helped them achieve their goals.
The 2018-2019 application period is now closed. Winners will be announced in June.
