The National Consortium for Academics and Sports hosts its Annual Giant Steps Awards Banquet and Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony each fall in Orlando.

This inspiring event honors winners of the National STUDENT-Athlete Day Giant Steps Awards, chosen annually in conjunction with the celebration of National STUDENT-Athlete Day every April 6. The incredible student-athletes honored have truly made a difference in the world through their involvement in sport. They motivate others with their positive examples, overcome obstacles while continuing to reach their goals, breakdown barriers, create paths for those who will come behind them, and create opportunities for youth through sport and leadership.

Giant Steps Award Winners are chosen in the categories of Coach, Courageous Male and Female Student-Athletes, Civic Leaders, Community Organizations, Heroes Among Us, and Barrier Breakers.
