An email response will be sent confirming receipt of the nomination. Members of the Colorado High School Coaches Association will be asked to be on the Steinmark Award selection committee. Members from schools submitting nominees are not eligible to be on the selection committee.
The Steinmark Award honors Fred Steinmark, who excelled in football, basketball and baseball while attending Wheat Ridge High School in the late 1960s. Steinmark also was an outstanding student and was active in several school and community-oriented endeavors before attending the University of Texas, where he helped the Longhorns to the national football title in 1969. Steinmark died from cancer in 1971 at age 22.
Eight finalists and the final winner of the award will be selected by a committee of athletic directors, coaches, and former Steinmark Award winners. The winners will be honored at the Colorado High School Coaches Association All-State Games banquet to be held on June 10, 2011 on the campus of Adams State College in Alamosa, Colorado.
