The Info List - Silver Anniversary Awards (NCAA)

The Silver Anniversary Awards are given each year by the American National Collegiate Athletic Association
National Collegiate Athletic Association
(NCAA) to recognize six distinguished former student-athletes on their 25th anniversary as college graduates. The Silver Anniversary Awards were first given in 1973, when five distinguished former student-athletes were honored. In 1986, the number of annual honorees was increased to six. In order to be eligible, the nominee must be a college graduate and a varsity letter-winner at an NCAA member institution and must have achieved personal distinction since his or her graduation. The selection criteria are weighted 40 percent to the nominee’s status as a prominent collegiate athlete and 60 percent to the nominee’s career achievement.
