An esteemed team of judges made up of media members, professional athletes, college professors, and hall of fame coaches choose 1st Place and Runner-Up winners--American Writing Awards judges reserve the right to award multiple 1st Place or Runner-Up winners if they believe more than one piece of work merits recognition. Winners are announced in early December 2022.
Any Sports Writer between the ages of 18-120 can enter their book. All books of sport published between 2020-2023 are allowed entry.
