The 2016-17 high school sports seasons are underway, which means it’s time to get excited about The Courier-Journal Kentuckiana Sports Awards presented by Norton Sports Health.

In June, The Courier-Journal hosted more than 1,800 people to honor the best high school athletes in Metro Louisville and Southern Indiana, and NFL great Peyton Manning was on hand to share some advice – and to meet the winners.

We’ll have some exciting announcements about the 2017 awards ceremony coming soon, but you can already get started earning yourself and a guest an invitation to next summer’s event via The Courier-Journal Athlete of the Week Awards presented by Norton Sports Health.

Each Tuesday beginning Aug. 23, four new nominees for both Metro Louisville and Southern Indiana will be posted on our website, and fans can vote through Sunday evening to determine the winners. For more on how to nominate an athlete and how to vote for the awards, visit our Athlete of the Week FAQ here.
