In 2010, the Sharon Holliday Memorial Award for Sportsmanship was created and awarded posthumously to Sharon Holliday, who was an active and involved baton parent. The criteria for this award are modeled on the example she demonstrated and are as follows:

  • A nominee for this award shall be a CBTF member (parent, athlete, coach, judge, volunteer) who exhibits the true meaning of sportsmanship as displayed by their interaction with other CBTF members at baton-related events throughout the year.
  • This person need not have made their mark at the national level, however, being a good sport at the local, provincial and national level, as well as showing good sportsmanship to CBTF members outside of their club and province, shall be taken into consideration.
  • A recipient may win this award more than once.
  • There shall be only one recipient in a given year.
