Positive Athlete is a celebration of young Athletes who have overcome difficult circumstances, given back to their schools and communities in a significant way, or just have an infectious positive attitude that makes everyone around them a better person. We celebrate them with awards, corporately sponsored scholarships, unique opportunities, and CNN Sports tells their stories on a national media platform to inspire other athletes. Over 7 years, thousands of high school athletes have been nominated by coaches, parents, teachers, family members, and fans. And over $250,000 in scholarships have been awarded.
This year we would like to congratulate Isaiah Coleman and Lily Fabienke for being two recipients of this award that will be handed out at the June 19, Minnesota Twins Game.
The two are now eligible to win one of the Delta Air Lines $2,500 scholarships that will be announced at the Twins game.
