CIRA Ontario Awards
We know that some people go well above and beyond in supporting CIRA Ontario's mission of promoting fun, active participation for all; and that they do it for the well-being of kids!
We want to acknowledge and honour that, and therefore give Outstanding Intramural Achievement Awards to selected schools that provide great intramural programs for their students.
CIRA Ontario Outstanding Intramural Achievement Banners were given to nearly 40 schools this year. Programs must offer a varied line up of activities, promote fun, active participation, fair play and involve students in a leadership capacity. Applicants must be a member of CIRA Ontario.
