The Outstanding Future Professional Award is given to two health and physical education students in New Jersey and reflects EDAs commitment to its future professionals. Once chosen for this award, those students are sent to the Eastern District’s annual convention where they will attend conferences and a banquet honoring their achievements. In order to receive this award, students must be in good standing with their college and be a member of AAHPERD.
