Comeback Student Athlete of the Year
Have you ever had to sit on the sidelines because of injury or illness? Did you ever have to go to physical therapy or treatment while your teammates were competing and having fun? Well, here’s your chance to be rewarded for your hard work and dedication to get back in the game!
The “Comeback Student Athlete of the Year” contest rewards outstanding young athletes who have returned to athletic competition after receiving treatment for an injury, illness, or physical limitation.
Throughout the year all contest nominees will have the chance of being chosen as the “Comeback Student Athlete of the Week” and highlighted on television on 12News Saturday 6 p.m. news cast. At the end of the school year, a panel of judges will choose the PCH Sports Medicine Comeback Student Athlete of the Year. There will also be an award for the “Fan Fave,” who will be chosen by your votes. Both winners will be awarded scholarship money to be presented at an end-of-the-year banquet.
