Chen will join 19 other Boston-area finalists for an Awards ceremony on Saturday at the EMC Club at Fenway Park, during which 10 scholarships of $2,000 apiece will be awarded.
The awards are based on student essays about how they represent what Positive Coaching Alliance calls a “Triple Impact Competitor,” or an athlete that focuses on
“personal mastery” of their sport, makes their teammates better through their leadership skills, and makes their sport better by "honoring the game."
Positive Coaching Alliance is a national nonprofit organization.
