Every Tuesday during our 11:00 news, First Coast News recognizes an athlete of the week
. This award is open to all local
high school student-athletes from any sport.
Here are some of the criteria we look for in deciding who gets this weekly recognition:
- Outstanding achievement in athletics
- Outstanding achievement in academics
- Outstanding achievement in community service
- Someone who has overcome adversity (i.e. recovery from injury, loss of a loved one, mental or physical handicap, etc.)
If you know of someone who deserves to be honored by First Coast News, please take a minute to fill out this nomination form.
The young men and young women that are chosen as our athlete of the
week will be featured in a TV story on Tuesday nights during the 11:00
news. The recipients will also get a commemorative plaque, and there is
a possibility that they will be invited to attend a banquet at the end
of the school year.
Every Friday night on Sideline 2013, we also recognize a band member or band of the week and cheerleader or cheerleaders of the week.
If you'd like to nominate and individual or a group of students for this weekly recognition, please send us an e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also submit photos of the nominees to that e-mail address as well.
