The Congressional Award, in partnership with the NCAA, aims to support our nation’s student-athletes and bring important discussions on mental health to the forefront.

We invite athletes to start their journey and earn Congress’ highest award for youth. As one of the pillars, The Award believes in setting challenging Physical Fitness goals to encourage youth to step – or play – out of their comfort zone. The program is ideal for student-athletes as participation on a team, club, or even independent sport can help you earn The Award.
