North Shore Student Athlete Program

    We are pleased to begin the 24th Year of the North Shore Student Athlete Program, sponsored by Moynihan Lumber, in conjunction with The Salem News, The Daily Item, The Gloucester Times, North Shore Sports Desk (104.9FM) and
Since its inception the program has sought to recognize youngsters who have made a considerable effort to maintain outstanding grades and also reach high levels of athletic accomplishment.


                  The North Shore Student Athlete Program highlights student achievements in athletics and academics.  The students must have a "B" or better average in all subjects and excel in a sport. Since its inception in the fall of 1991, 418 Student Athletes of the Month and 46 Student Athletes of the Year have been recognized.  Student Athlete's of the Month and their Schools receive plaques to commemorate their achievements, are interviewed on WBOQ radio and their respective newspapers. Student Athletes of the Year receive plaques plus a $1,000 cash scholarship at a luncheon held in their honor in June. This years luncheon will be held at the Salem Country Club.

Perhaps the best way to appreciate what the program means is to read the list of previous recipients  of Student Athlete of the Year from 1992 to 2014. 


            All during the school year, the Sports Editors of The Daily Item, The Salem News, Gloucester Daily Times and the Daily News of Newburyport will be selecting the North Shore Male & Female Student  Athletes of the Month. 
To be selected, a student must:
       1. Play a varsity sport at a local public or private high school.
       2. Be nominated by his/her Coach, Athletic Director or Principal to one of the
           Sports Editors of the above named papers. 
       3. Have a “B” average or better in all subjects.
       4. Have excelled on the athletic field in the month he/she is nominated. 

Nomination Process

The nomination process is simple:  Fill out the  nomination form  and submit it or print out the nomination sheet and fax it to one of the sports writers listed at the bottom of the sheet. There is no limit to the number of Student Athletes who can be nominated each month, provided they meet the criteria. 

             Your participation is vital to the continuation of the North Shore Student Athlete Program. We encourage Athletic Directors and Coaches to nominate their deserving Student Athletes. Last year’s nominations seemed to always come from the same schools. Our goal is to receive nominations from ALL the schools on the North Shore. Thank you for your past support of this program and for your future nominations in the 2014-2015 school year.
