The Wisconsin Sports Awards is an invitation-only event of 600 attendees that celebrates excellence in Wisconsin high school, collegiate and professional sports. Guests will rub elbows with Wisconsin’s elite athletes, coaches and executives; previous guests have included: Aaron Rodgers, Barry Alvarez, Bo Ryan, Mark Tauscher, Herb Kohler, Wes Edens and many more.

The event, which took place Thursday, June 6, 2019 at Fiserv Forum in Milwaukee, honored athletes and teams, and featured community-minded elements with scholarships and nonprofit donations. It was broadcasted live on Newsradio 620 WTMJ and we had behind the scenes footage via Facebook Live.

It is the biggest night in Wisconsin Sports, and not your ordinary awards show.
