Since 2009, the Western Pennsylvania Interscholastic Athletic League (WPIAL) has hosted an annual Summit on Sportsmanship each year for its member schools and their students. The event features keystone speakers discussing topics and leading activities related to the importance of sportsmanship in athletics, as well as the recognition of the previous season’s WPIAL Sportsmanship Award winners and, more recently, the community champions from the WPIAL & Pittsburgh City League Food & Fund Drive.

The 13th WPIAL Sportsmanship Summit was held on November 16, 2022 at the Senator John Heinz History Center and Western Pennsylvania Sports Museum. Featured speakers included Roberto Clemente Jr. (President & CEO for RCJ Global Impact, LLC), Gregg Behr (Executive Director for the Grable Foundation), Brian Gulish (Vice President for Marketing & Communications for Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank), Paul Skirtich (WPIAL Basketball Official & PIAA District VII Basketball Rules Interpreter), and Orlando Fulgenzio II (Vice President for First National Bank).
