The MOAC Wrestling Coaches Scholarship is a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt public charity organized for the sole purpose of raising funds to be distributed as scholarships to senior wrestlers from Mid-Ohio Athletic Conference schools. As such, any donations to the scholarship fund are tax-exempt for the donor, and if you donate to the scholarship fund you will be provided a receipt on request for your tax records.

This tournament is called the MOAC Challenge. The 2013 tournament will be held at Highland High School on Sunday, February 3. Here is the flyer for this event: 2013MOACChallenge.pdf.
