Bucknuts & JJHuddle Ohio HS Weekly Awards
This winter we are pleased to announce that JJHuddle and Bucknuts have partnered together to award weekly player and team of the week honors in ice hockey, boys & girls swimming, boys & girls bowling and wrestling.
Each week (regular and postseason) during the winter sports seasons, 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 a personalized award from JJHuddle and Bucknuts.
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 Monday and voting will be conducted in a special JJHuddle forum. Voting will cease at noon on Friday, after which the winners will be announced.
The Week 11 competition for the JJHuddle & Bucknuts Ohio HS Ice Hockey Awards is over. And it was a good one. Over 15,500 votes were cast and this week’s winners are…
