Due to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, and in accordance with governmental directives and public health officials’ guidance, the 2020 St. Paul Area Athena Awards annual luncheon scheduled for Wednesday, April 22nd has been CANCELLED. 

The Athena Committee is recognizing, honoring,  and celebrating these amazing female high school senior student-athletes with a special Acknowledgment page on our website.  The webpage features Athena achievements and photos as well as links to their Lifetouch posters.  It also includes the speech of  Keynote Speaker, Margaret H.

St. Paul Area Athena Awards Committee

St. Paul Area Athena Awards

The St. Paul Area Athena Awards program honors outstanding female high school senior student-athletes from St. Paul and suburban public and independent high schools for their athletic achievements.   The award is based on excellence in individual sports or for participation and accomplishments in team sports. 

Athena is the Goddess of Wisdom and Skills. She was brave and possessed the essence of all that is noble.  Legend tells us that she possessed the gifts of dignity, power, and youth, making her invincible. 

The 2019-2020 school year's Athenas will be recognized at the St. Paul Athena Award banquet on Wednesday, April 22,  2020 at Vadnais Heights Commons. 

Congratulations to all Athena Award finalists on their outstanding high school athletics careers!
