Positive High School Athlete Awards

2016-17 Nominations Accepted through March 31, 2017

Positive Athlete Georgia is accepting nominations for the 2016-17 Positive High School Athlete Awards through March 31, 2017

Parents, coaches, and teachers are encouraged to nominate student-athletes whose presence and attitude positively impacts their team and school environment. A nominee does not have to be the most valuable player, and the nomination should not include statistics or athletic awards.
Online Nomination Form

Positive Athlete Georgia is looking for the most positive boys and girls high school athletes during the 2016-2017 school year in 26 different high school sports. Last year Positive Athlete Georgia received over 600 nominations from 65 Georgia high schools for student-athletes. A Positive Athlete has a great attitude, contributes to their school or community in unique and positive ways, or may have overcome difficult circumstances.

Nominees may win awards from their individual schools, their counties, and could be named the Most Positive High School Athlete in their sport at the annual State-wide Awards in June 2017. Hines Ward and other current and former professional athletes from the Braves, Hawks, Falcons, Dream, UGA, and Georgia Tech present the awards.
