MarshfieldAreaSports.com and WDLB-WOSQ Radio are proud to announce the return of the High School Athlete of the Month Award for the 2015-16 school sports season. Marshfield Clinic, Cost Cutters and Burt Trophy & Awards are sponsors of the award.
Nominations are open for the WDLB-WOSQ Radio & MarshfieldAreaSports.com January High School Athlete of the Month Award.
Varsity athletes from the following high schools are eligible to be nominated for the award, which will be given out monthly from September 2015 through June 2016: Abbotsford, Athens, Auburndale, Colby, Columbus Catholic, Edgar, Granton, Greenwood, Loyal, Marathon, Marshfield, Neillsville, Owen-Withee, Pittsville, Spencer, Stratford and Thorp.
An Athlete of the Year award will be given in mid-July and will be selected by MarshfieldAreaSports.com and WDLB-WOSQ Radio staff.
Winners of the monthly award, and the Athlete of the Year, will be presented an award from Burt Awards.
Nominations should be e-mailed to MarshfieldAreaSports.com publisher Paul Lecker at firstname.lastname@example.org. Nominations should include specific statistics and/or reasons on why that athlete deserves to be the Athlete of the Month. MarshfieldAreaSports.com will select up to a maximum of eight athletes each month for online voting.
Voting for the award takes place from the 1st through the 7th of each month for the previous month’s accomplishments. The winner will be announced on the 9th of each month. The winner will be determined by the most number of votes cast for that athlete online at MarshfieldAreaSports.com. Votes are limited to one per IP address, per 24-hour period. (Note: A change in voting procedures has been implemented beginning with the October voting due to excessive skirting of the voting rules with our previous policy.)
All decisions of MarshfieldAreaSports.com and WDLB-WOSQ Seehafer Broadcasting are final.
Winners of the monthly awards are not eligible to be nominated again during that sports season in which they won.
Come back to this page each month to cast your vote for the High School Athlete of the Month.
