Sample Entry


Make sure you don’t include any of the nominee’s personal information – like a last name or an address – in the submission field. If we need that information, we’ll contact your parent.

We know you have many accomplishments on the field, in school, and in the community. Speak with a parent or coach to help you decide which ones stand out the most. Write a few paragraphs on why you think you deserve to be SportsKid of the Year. Then, list some of your accomplishments. Here is what an entry might look like:

I think I should be SKOTY because I overcame a tough start in basketball and eventually became a league champion. Even though I was never the biggest kid on the court, I worked hard and never gave up. My proudest sports memory is working with my team to win our first school title. But I don’t take success for granted. I give back to my community. I volunteer at our local food pantry, and I am a peer mentor. My highlights include:

- As a point guard, I led my team to the league championship.
- This season, I scored 500 points and had 200 assists.
- I also play midfield for the school soccer team.
- I am on the honor roll. My favorite subject is math.
- I won the annual award for community service at my school.
