Coaches' Memo

Attached please find information about a program which was first introduced to the high schools in Wisconsin in 1993.  We hope it will provide support to your daily educational and social efforts, and become meaningful to the overall academic and athletic approach in your high school. 

Founded in 1993, the Wisconsin Chapter is one of 120 Chapters of the NFF, which currently includes an all time high of over 12,000 members.  Each year over $1.3 million in scholarships are awarded by Chapters to high school scholar-athletes. 

The primary focus of the Chapter is to promote outstanding personal, academic, and athletic achievement among graduation seniors in Wisconsin.  In addition to recognizing qualified nominees, a permanent Endowment Fund has been established to provide college scholarship assistance.  To date, over $74,500 has been awarded. 

Initial funding of the Endowment, established in conjunction with the formation of the Wisconsin Chapter, came from memorial contributions in the name of George H. Chryst, former football coach at Madison Edgewood High School, UW-Madison, and UW-Platteville.  For many years, profits from the All Pro Lineman Camp have been donated annually by area coaches to the trust fund.  The Chapter also receives rebates for scholarships from the NFF.

The forms are available here on the website to nominate your school's NFF High School Scholar-Athlete.  The nomination deadline is January 24, 2020.  Every student who is nominated will receive a personalized plaque, signifying selection as their high school's nominee for the NFF Scholar-Athlete Award.  This plaque will be available for pick up at the WFF booth at the WFCA Clinic on April 2-4, 2020.  A personalized name plate will also be provided for each participating high school's institutional plaque, which displays each of their nominees since 1993.
