To qualify for the award, students must have a "B" or better grade point average and participate in league-sponsored athletic and fine arts activities. League member schools are invited to nominate two students, a boy and a girl for the award.

Award recipients are selected through a multi-level process involving the League's administrative regions and a committee of athletic, fine arts and educational leaders.
