The Southeast Michigan High School Sports Awards is a nine-month student athlete recognition program honoring the top student athletes from the Southeast Michigan region.
The awards are part of the USA TODAY High School Sports Awards, the largest high school sports recognition program in the country. Event organizers had hoped to plan for an in person event for 2021, but concern for the continued safety and health of students and their families with the ongoing spread of COVID-19, led to a decision to do an online version.
“Due to the various county, state and regional variations in protection against the spread of the virus, as well as our own commitment to safety, we couldn’t confidently plan for live events across the country in 2021,” said Crystal Costa, Gannett’s event director for the high school sports award series. “We do hope and plan to be returning to our ESPY-style high school awards shows in person in 2022.”
Winners will be posted on the event website June 30.
Winners should register on the website to receive their awards.
