WNBA president Laurel J. Richie said that ``Kara is an ambassador and leader for all levels of basketball as well as a role model to girls and women everywhere'' in a release Thursday announcing Lawson as the award recipient.

The award includes a $10,000 gift from the WNBA to the recipient's charity of choice. Lawson, a former Tennessee star, requested that the money go to the Pat Summitt Foundation, dedicated to fighting Alzheimer's disease. Lawson is honorary co-chair of the foundation's advisory board.

During the 2012 season, Lawson donated $50 for each of her 74 3-pointers to the Pat Summitt Foundation. Her donation was matched by enough organizations that her campaign raised $32,000.
