In 2003, KSA originated the Ted Scharf Humanitarian Award. This is an annual award given to a player on the Kitchener Rangers in recognition of his volunteerism and community service.  
The  presentation is made at the team's year-end banquet along with all the other individual trophies.
The first winner of the new KSA Ted Scharf Humanitarian Award was David Clarkson.  Pictured with the Memorial Cup are (from the left); George Halkidis (Kitchener Rangers), David Clarkson (Kitchener Ranger recipient of the KSA "Ted Scharf" Humanitarian Award), Al McDonough (Programmed Insurance Borkers) and John Thompson (Chairman of the KSA Scholarship Committee) (Photo taken at KSA's Scholarship dinner)
