Do you have a high school sports team in your area that deserves recognition?
Tell us about it.
USA TODAY High School Sports Awards programs across the country are taking nominations for the Blue Diamond Top Team Fan Favorite Award. The top three finalists and overall winner will be announced during a free, on-demand broadcast Aug. 6 on the national show website.
Teams from all sports, seasons and schools in the nation played during the 2020-21 school year are eligible. You decide if a team is worthy.
Were you impressed when you saw a local tennis team helping serve food at a shelter for Thanksgiving? Did you watch a volleyball team overcome enormous odds to win a state title? Or read about a golf team that stepped up to support a teammate after a family tragedy? Or hear about a football team that raised thousands of dollars for charity? Find any participating market and nominate them.
This is your chance to ensure that a deserving team is recognized for what it accomplished on and off the field. It doesn’t matter if you are a team member, parent, school administrator or superfan — anyone can nominate their favorite team from their area, or any area across the country.
If the team you wish to nominate is already shown on a contest page, you do not need to nominate them again. Simply show your support by voting for your favorite team during the contest voting period up to once per day.
Nominations may be submitted now through April 6 at 11 a.m. EST. Voting starts April 7 at 11 a.m. EST and concludes April 28 at 11 a.m. EST.
The winner of the Blue Diamond Top Team Fan Favorite Award will be announced during the national USA TODAY High School Sports Awards show and will receive a trophy after the on-demand broadcast.
