About the Award

Lowe's Senior CLASS Award Trophy
An acronym for Celebrating Loyalty and Achievement for Staying in School, the Lowe’s Senior CLASS Award was launched in 2001 to honor the attributes of college basketball seniors who remained committed to their university and pursued the many rewards that a senior season could bring.

In addition to the core requirement that a candidate be an NCAA Division II CIAA senior in men’s or women’s basketball, the award winner will be selected based on personal qualities that define a complete student-athlete. These areas of excellence are defined by the four Cs:

CLASSROOM – Academic achievements and progression toward a college degree.

CHARACTER – Attributes that define personal character, including leadership, integrity, teamwork, overcoming obstacles and work ethic.

COMMUNITY – Involvement in community and charity activities, utilizing status as a college athlete to make an impact in worthwhile causes.

COMPETITION – Achievements within the athlete’s sport and their role in the success of the team.
