Bucknuts & JJHuddle Ohio HS Weekly Awards
This school year we are pleased to announce that the Ohio National Guard, Bucknuts and JJHuddle have again partnered together to award weekly player and team of the week honors in several boys and girls sports.
Each week during the fall, winter and spring sports seasons (regular and post), we will hold a fan-generated contest on JJHuddle to tab a weekly Team and Player of the Week in each sport. Each weekly winner will receive awards.
How it works?
A thread soliciting nominations will be posted/stuck in each sports’ JJHuddle Forum each week. Fans will then nominate top performances. We will announce the weekly finalists (up to 10) on JJHuddle every Tuesday and voting will be conducted in a special JJHuddle forum. Voting will cease at noon on Monday, after which the winners will be announced.
The Week 8 competition for the JJHuddle & Bucknuts Ohio HS Girls Cross Country Awards is over. And it was a good one. Over 34,000 votes were cast and this week’s winners are…
