"I'm proud of what the school and its partners have achieved - both in honouring these exceptional professionals, and in working together to raise funds for students wanting to make their mark on the industry in the future."

A panel of 30 leading sports marketers, influencers and representatives, including executives from founding partners: BMO Financial Group, the Canadian Football League, Maple Leaf Sports & Entertainment, SDI Marketing, TSN and presenting partner, The Globe and Mail, will select recipients. Winners will be announced on May 1, 2014 at the college's Waterfront Campus in Toronto.
