The Georgia High School Sports Awards is a student athlete recognition program that recognizes the top student athletes in most state sanctioned sports throughout the year as part of the national USA TODAY High School Sports Awards program. The top athletes of the year for each sport will be announced July 15 on the award website.
This program is part of the USA TODAY High School Sports Awards, the largest high school sports recognition program in the country. Along with the chance to be recognized on the statewide level, the Georgia athletes of the year will be national honorees in the inaugural USA TODAY national high school sports awards show in August.
The most elite high school athletes, coaches and teams from across the U.S. will be featured in the awards show for each nationally recognized sport.
A nationally recognized sport must have a minimum level of participation across the country. Sports that will be featured on the national level include cross country, tennis, golf, soccer, volleyball, football - offense and defense, hockey, swimming and diving, lacrosse, wrestling, basketball, softball, baseball, track and field and gymnastics.
Please use the hashtag #GEORGIAHSSA and #USATODAYHSSA for a chance to be featured on the social media feeds on the event websites and be a part of the online conversation.
