Idaho State University’s National Girls and Women in Sports Day
Idaho State University is proud to celebrate National Girls and Women in Sports Day (NGWSD). This national day has been proclaimed by Congress every year since 1987, and is honored annually the first week of February. NGWSD recognizes the progress of girls and women in sports, and the benefits that sport and fitness activities can bring to the lives of all girls and women.
During National Girls and Women in Sports Day, the Trailblazer Award is presented to a woman with affiliation to ISU who has provided significant leadership and mentorship to women in sport. Learn more about past Trailblazer Award Winners.
