Stan Speaks: The Merit Award is a most respected symbol of interpersonal relations consistent with good sportsmanship at the International level. It is awarded to one player from each nation, a player who best demonstrates these attributes. Selection is the responsibility of the Team Captains in conjunction with their National President.
The award was introduced by Jim Allen of Allen R Shuffleboard Co at the 25th ISA in Lakeside, OH in 2006 and has been carried on for every Team Event since. The Merit Award is one criterion applied for entrance into the ISA Hall of Fame, Player Division.
