The ceremony honoured student athletes who earned an 80 per cent average or higher in all their courses during the 2018–19 academic year, while competing on a Varsity team.

Each recipient received a pin: enamel for first-time winners, bronze for second, silver for third, gold for fourth, and a diamond pin for anyone earning this award five or more times during their intercollegiate career.

This year, 233 U of T student athletes were given pins recognizing their academic excellence.
