Do you know a high school student-athlete who has been an all-star beyond the box score? If so, we want to hear from you.

The Central Ohio High School Sports Awards is taking nominations for the I AM SPORT Award, which recognizes student-athletes who give back to their communities through volunteerism. The winner will be announced during the on-demand streaming awards show July 8 on the event website: sportsawards.usatoday.com/centralohio. The show is free to watch thanks to generous sponsor support from Nationwide Children's Hospital Sports Medicine and Raising Cane's.

Central Ohio High School Sports Awards

Any athlete in the area – from all schools and sports – is eligible to be nominated for the I AM SPORT Award.

Perhaps you noticed a local high school soccer player delivering meals in your neighborhood during the pandemic or were greeted at your door by a football player offering to help with yard work. Maybe you were touched by a student-athlete offering virtual tutoring services or noticed a group of athletes cleaning up the local park. This is your chance to ensure that a deserving student-athlete is recognized for what he or she accomplished in the community; you can nominate an athlete at sportsawards.usatoday.com/centralohio/sport-award.

Nominations may be submitted through March 9. The voting starts March 10 at 11 a.m. EST and concludes April 7.

If the student-athlete you wish to nominate already is shown on the contest page, you do not need to nominate him or her again. Simply wait for the voting period and show your support by voting for your favorite community all-star up to once per day. 

The winner of the I AM SPORT Award will be revealed during the Central Ohio High School Sports Awards show and a trophy will be mailed to the winner following the show.
