Nominate Your Favorite Athlete & Volunteer

Nominations for Athlete of Year & Volunteer of Year Open

We have been so pleased to offer sports in the unusual year of 2020 — and excited about the participation and the help of our volunteers.

The State Games of Mississippi chooses three athletes each year  — Male, Female and Youth — from nominations in EVERY sport. These three RUSH Athletes of the Year become the torch runners for the 2021 Opening Ceremony.

Coaches, officials, athletes, volunteers and spectators may nominate an athlete for these awards. One female, one male and one youth athlete will be chosen from each sporting event to represent that sport for the 2020 State Games of Mississippi, and three will be named RUSH Athletes of the Year.

Please nominate the athlete of your choice who personifies the ideals of the State Games movement, such as participation, sportsmanship, effort and positive attitude. 

We also recognize the Volunteer of the Year based on your nominations.
