Leo E. Lewis Jr. Memorial Award
Each year, the Lewis Sports Foundation (LSF) awards grants to local practitioners. At least two sports professionals are presented small tokens of appreciation for their tireless work and effort to service youth. These awards are designated to provide support to each practitioner and their organization.
The Leo E. Lewis Jr. Memorial Award is given to recognize outstanding effort as a coaching or administrative professional who tirelessly works in leadership and sport positions in the Minneapolis-St. Paul metro area. We target those individuals who teach and/or coach young people despite the odds that confront them as they succeed.
