Recipients must qualify under ALL of the requirements.

? Must have coached for 25 years in the sport(s) of track and field and/or cross country.
? Must have coached in Iowa for the 25 years.
? While counting years, count schools? calendar years not seasons (i.e. coaching track and cross country this year does not count as ?2 years?).
? Can coach either high school, middle school/junior high, or any combination as head and/or assistant coach as long as above requirements are followed.
