The Wisconsin Sports Awards


wsa-logoThe Wisconsin Sports Awards is an annual, red (or blue) carpet event celebrating the best of Wisconsin athletics in high school, collegiate and professional arenas.

 

More than 100 members of the media determine the nominations each year for 11 categories of the Wisconsin Sports Awards. Fans have the opportunity to vote for two awards – the Fan Friendly Team of the Year and the Game of the Year.

 

The Wisconsin Sports Awards is an invitation-only event, but each year fans are able to win tickets to the event through our ESPN Wisconsin event partners or by voting for the two open awards. The Wisconsin Sports Awards has also been broadcast as a one-hour television special and aired throughout Wisconsin in 2013 and 2014.

 

For information about sponsorship or for media requests, please email Emily Dillinger.
