Idaho State to Celebrate 50th Annual National Girls and Women in Sports Day on Saturday, February 12

January 24, 2022

Idaho State University will celebrate the 50th annual National Girls and Women in Sports Day with $3 tickets and gifts for the first 300 elementary-aged children at the Idaho State Women’s Basketball Game against Eastern Washington University on Saturday, Feb.12 starting at 2 p.m. in Reed Gym. 

This year’s theme is Lead Her Forward. At half-time, the 2022 Trailblazer Award will be presented to Shannon Whitmer. This award, given annually, recognizes a woman with affiliation to Idaho State who has provided significant leadership and mentorship to women in sport.

$3 game day vouchers, sponsored by the ISU Athletic Department, will be handed out at the game (no limit). Along with $3 admission, the first 300 K-6th grade age children will receive a t-shirt and a goody bag. Please wear a mask to this event. 

National Girls and Women in Sports Day (NGWSD) began in 1987 as a special day in our nation’s capital to recognize women’s sports according to the NGWSD website. A vibrant movement we celebrate annually, NGWSD honors the achievements and 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.
