From press release

The Tewaaraton Foundation will unveil the 2016 Tewaaraton Award Watch Lists presented by Under Armour live at a special fundraising reception at Cipriani in New York City on Tuesday, Feb. 23.

“We’re excited to be back in New York City for our third year running to announce the Watch List,” said Tewaaraton Foundation Chairman Jeff Harvey. “The lacrosse community in this region has been amazing, and this reception is a can’t-miss for lacrosse fans.”

The initial men’s and women’s watch lists for the 2016 season will be limited to 50 players each. Players not named to the initial list have several opportunities to play their way into a spot as the season progresses. Watch lists additions, if applicable, will be announced on March 17 and April 7.

On April 28, the field will be narrowed to 25 men’s and 25 women’s nominees. Nominees can be players on the watch lists or players not on the watch lists, effectively allowing for a third round of additions. Five men’s and five women’s finalists will be announced on May 12 and invited to the ceremony. The 16th annual Tewaaraton Award Ceremony will be held in Washington, D.C., on June 2, 2016.

For the first time ever, Tewaaraton will host an online auction to coincide with the NYC Fundraiser and Watch Lists Announcement. Limited-edition custom Tewaaraton items from presenting sponsor Under Armour and priceless experiences like a VIP trip to this year’s Tewaaraton Ceremony highlight the online auction. Proceeds go to the Tewaaraton Foundation and a scholarship fund for Native American high school students.

US Lacrosse and the Tewaaraton Foundation annually present scholarships to one Native American male and one Native American female high school student-athlete and lacrosse player. The winners and their families are invited to attend the Tewaaraton Award Ceremony.

The Native American Scholarships recognize and reward exceptional academic achievement, athletic performance and ambition. Applicants are asked to articulate what lacrosse means to them as student-athletes and members of their community. As one of the primary goals of the scholarships is to honor lacrosse’s native roots, the selection committee weighs heavily on this aspect of the application. Students must be members of the Iroquois community, enrolled in a secondary school and be in good academic standing to be eligible for this scholarship.

Earlier this year, the Tewaaraton Foundation announced the 2016 Tewaaraton Legends and Spirit honorees. The 10th Spirit of Tewaaraton recipient is Tina Sloan Green, and the 2016 Tewaaraton Legends are former Penn State star Candace Finn Rocha and former Maryland star Frank Urso. The 2016 Spirit of Tewaaraton Award is presented by Panama Jack.
