The Ann Brown Sportsmanship Award is presented annually at the National Championships to one male and one female athlete who are judged to best embody the USCA Spirit of Curling as voted on by their peers.
The award is given in memory of Ann Brown, who was a key contributor to the sport. Brown curled in the Chicago area, was a past president of the United States Curling Association (USCA), and the second female inductee into the USCA Hall of Fame.
