2024 Tom Greenway Award Winners

In 2005 the Tom Greenway Scholarship Committee was established. Tom Greenway was a two time Olympian from the Lethbridge Judo Club who passed away in 2004 at the age of 47 years old. The scholarship criteria was developed by Allan Greenway, Joe Meli, Dean Maruyama and Garry Yamashita.  Judo Alberta pays tribute to Tom Greenway each year by providing a $400 scholarship which is awarded to Judo Alberta’s top ranked male and female athletes based on the most 1st place wins regardless of weight category. The age eligibility for this scholarship are athletes who are 14 years old to 19-year-old. All tournaments considered for this scholarship are part of the Judo Alberta point system during the period from July 1 through May 31 each year. Athletes are eligible to win the award every third year giving the opportunity for this scholarship to impact many different judoka. 

The purpose of the scholarship is to assist young judoka to attend out of province tournaments in order to elevate their standard of Judo. Donations can be sent to the Judo Alberta office, payable to the “Tom Greenway Memorial Scholarship Fund.

Congratulations to Emiliya Aliyeva from Hiro’s Judo Club and Drake Gregory from the Lethbridge Judo Club for being the 2024 Tom Greenway Award Winners.
