This year, it has become my goal to present excelling teams and athletes with certificates for their accomplishments.
I have noticed that surrounding counties have media outlets who present a student-athlete of the week award and we do not. This has inspired the “KWG Productions Henry County High School Athlete of the Week Award” to recognize our outstanding athletes. The award is open to any Henry County high school athlete who is enrolled in grades 9-12.
To nominate an athlete, please send an email to Kaleb at firstname.lastname@example.org and include the athlete’s name, grade, school, sport, a statement as to why the student-athlete should receive the award, and your name. Anyone can submit a nomination. Nominations must be submitted by 11:59pm on Thursday nights. Winners will be announced on the KWG Productions Facebook and Twitter pages on Fridays at noon. The winners certificate will then be mailed to the high school athletics office.
The first winner will be selected on March 10th.
Please keep in mind that this award will be presented to a student-athlete whose sport is in season. For example, fall sport nominations (boys/girls soccer, boys tennis, boys/girls cross country, football, girls golf, volleyball, and cheerleading) will be accepted from August 1st-November 30. Winter sport (boys/girls basketball, boys/girls swimming, wrestling, gymnastics, and cheerleading) nominations will be accepted from Nov. 1-March 31. Spring sport (baseball, softball, boys/girls track and field, boys golf, and girls tennis) will be accepted from March 1-June 30.
