The Seahawks and CenturyLink have partnered on the CenturyLink High School Athlete of the Week program since 2012 and have jointly donated over $50,000 to Washington State high school athletic programs. The CenturyLink High School Athlete of the Week program seeks to cultivate student athlete leaders in athletics, academics, and community action.
Each year, ten student athletes are selected for their commitment to academics, athletic achievement, and leadership both on and off the field. Winners are recognized with an assembly at their school and when they attend a Seahawks home game. Starting in 2017, the program cumulated with the first annual CenturyLink High School Athlete of the Week Leadership Summit, where the winners got to hear from a panel of Seahawks and CenturyLink executives as well as attend a Seahawks practice.
Nominations for the 2018 CenturyLink High School Athlete of the Week class open on August 7th.
