Bucknuts & JJHuddle Ohio HS Weekly Awards
This winter we are pleased to announce that JJHuddle and Bucknuts have partnered together to again 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 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.
