Though we were not able to have a season in 2020, the OLOA, in partnership with the OLA, sees value in recognizing a dedicated official through the Tom Hutchinson Memorial Bursary Award. This award includes a $1,000 bursary and is presented annually to one official attending Canadian post-secondary education. Interested applicants may complete the attached form and submit their essay to firstname.lastname@example.org no later than November 5th at 12pm.
The full details on the bursary and application process are here.
