The Rotary Sportsmanship Awards were established in 1965 by Charlie Laughlin, a past sports editor and executive of the then Anderson Daily Bulletin. The award was established on the principle that good sportsmanship at all levels needed to be promoted and recognized.

The awards are based on these principles: Accept your responsibility as a role model; understand that representing your school and your community is a privilege that's not taken lightly; learn the rules of the games you play and follow them; help others understand them as well; treat your opponents the way you want to be treated — with respect; refrain from taunting, trash talking, or making any kind of derogatory remarks to your opponents; respect the integrity and judgment of game officials, no matter how much you disagree with them.
