Presented to any graduating student athlete who has amassed 200 or more points during four consecutive years of competition in UTM Eagles Varsity, U of T Intramural teams,  UTM Campus Rec Intramural leagues and tournaments and Extramural tournaments. The Gold Award of Excellence is a very difficult award to achieve. Only a few truly dedicated athletes can earn 200 athletic points over four consecutive years at U of T at Mississauga. Students do not need to be nominated for this award as it would be difficult for the nominator to remember all the activities the athlete would have participated in.
