In lieu of a show, the 67th-annual Oregon Sports Awards will be featured by NBC Sports Northwest, Pamplin Media Group and other news organizations.


The Show

Why is a show not being held this year?
The Oregon Sports Awards team has devoted its attention toward developing fundraising ideas for Special Olympics of Oregon and Play it Forward, as well as creating new media partnerships and driving year-round event engagement on social and digital media. We’re also in the process of securing a new location for 2020 alongside our sponsors (Nike is still very much involved). Exciting tweaks and changes to the awards and show are in the works as well.

Where will future shows be held? Providence Park and the Moda Center.

How can I watch? Sport Oregon and NBC Sports Northwest have partnered to reveal award winners on live TV from July 8-31.

Single-sport prep awards will be presented on “The Noe Show” with Brian Noe. The broadcast can also be picked up on KJOR Rip City Radio 620. Amateur and professional award-winners will appear on NBC Sports Northwest’s talk show “The Bridge” from 6-7 p.m. on July 10, 17, 24 and 31.

What is appropriate attire for the event?
Please wear business/cocktail attire to the Oregon Sports Awards.

Men: Dress slacks and shirt. Coat and tie optional
Women: Blouse, dress slacks, skirt, or dress

How long does the show last?
Past shows have lasted approximately two hours. It is our goal to trim the 2020 production time to between 45 minutes and one hour.

The Vote

Who votes?

The Oregon Sports Awards carefully crafts two separate voting panels. The first panel votes on all single-sport prep awards as well as the Johnny Carpenter Prep Athlete of the Year Award. The panel is comrpised of sports reporters and editors, TV and radio hosts, OSAA staff members, and individuals who are deemed an expert in high school sports.

The second panel votes on most amateur and professional awards. A heavy emphasis is placed on selecting media members who cover one-or-more of Oregon’s college athletic departments and/or professional sports teams.

When is the vote?

The Oregon Sports Awards operate on the OSAA’s athletic calendar year. Fall, winter, and spring prep awards are voted on after the conclusion of their respective season’s state championships. Amateur and professional awards are put to vote in June.

How are winners determined?

We use a cumulative scoring process. Voters are asked to select their top-three choices for each award. The nominee who receives the largest point value based on the number of first, second and third-place votes he/she receives wins. An award is shared between nominees in the event of a tie.
