District 13 Sports Award Banquet and Scholarship Information

Dear Athlete and Family,

The 50th Annual Sports Award Banquet will be held on Friday, June 2nd 2017 at Fountain Blue Banquets 2300 Mannheim Rd. in Des Plaines. Cocktails will be served at 6:00pm followed by a dinner at 7:00 pm sharp. 

The Order of AHEPA (American Hellenic Educational Progressive Association) is a fraternal organization founded upon the ideals and principals of patriotism, service to America and the preservation and perpetuation of the Greek heritage of its brotherhood. 

In addition, AHEPA places strong emphasis on the encouragement of higher learning for Greek-American young adults by awarding scholarships.  Annually, we award over $500,000 in scholarships to deserving students throughout the nation.  Another segment of the organization is dedicated to athletics in our community, both hosting of sports tournaments and the rendering of awards for athletic excellence.

The 13th District of AHEPA, one of the 26 Districts throughout America, annually sponsors a Sports Award Banquet. This banquet honors Greek-American and AHEPA family high school and college athletes who have played any sport on their high school or college teams. The athletes will be the guests of the committee and will be awarded a plaque or trophy for their athletic accomplishments. We have also added an Athletic Scholarship Program to our agenda. Four $1,000 and eight $500 scholarships will be presented to deserving male and female high school senior or any college athlete who has excelled in athletics and maintained at least a B average academically. Athletes who qualify should check the enclosed application form.

I am embarrassed to say that at last years Banquet there were only 95 athletes from Illinois and Wisconsin who received awards. I know that there more than 95 athletes of Greek Descent who play High School or College sports in and around Illinois, Wisconsin and Indiana.  I have made it my mission to change that.  I would like to get an application into the hands of every eligible athlete.  Athletes must attend the banquet to receive their awards.  Awards go to any student in high school or college, any grade any age, and of any gender.  As long you participate on a High School or College team, you are eligible. Please fill out and sign the enclosed application.  Please have your coaches make comments and sign the reverse side and send to Chris Atsaves, 13th District Athletic Director, by May 25.  Also, enclosed is a Banquet reservation form.  Athletes are free as guests of the Committee. Dinners for parents, family members, and guests are $40-$50 each. Please try to spread the word and distribute to other athletes you may know that may be eligible.  Feel free to call with any questions.
