Ariza Elevated Game Awards Coming in Summer 2015
Brand new award to recognize America’s most outstanding high school senior student-athletes
Los Angeles (PRUnderground) October 23rd, 2014
The Ariza Elevated Game Awards, an awards program dedicated to honoring high school seniors who have performed at an elite level both in the classroom and in the game, will debut in Los Angeles in Summer 2015.
Sponsored by NBA superstar and world champion Trevor Ariza of the Houston Rockets, the Ariza Elevated Game Awards will be the very first award show to honor high school students not only for their excellence in school and in their sports, but also for their bravery in overcoming the obstacles they’ve faced in their lives. The award program is scheduled for June 21, 2015 in Los Angeles.
“It’s going to be an amazing experience for these students — basically the high school version of the ESPY’S,” said Alex Parker, Executive Director of the Ariza Elevated Game Awards. “Many of these students have overcome so much pain and struggle in their lives to become tremendous successes, just as Trevor Ariza did. This is his way of giving back and showing the youth that with enough hard work and dedication, anyone can elevate their game in all areas of life to become a true star.”
The nonprofit awards program is designed to recognize male and female seniors in basketball, football, soccer, baseball, softball and volleyball. Coaches, teachers, parents and students can vote for those seniors they feel are most deserving of the award by going to arizaelevatedgameawards.com and submitting their vote online. The awards show is also seeking sponsors, who can get in touch through the website as well.
The first awards show will only be for students in the southern California area, but in the future it will be open for seniors all across the United States. The goal is to make the Ariza Elevated Game Awards into a nationally renowned program to give teens who have fought their way to triumph the recognition that they deserve.
“This is the ultimate recognition that student athletes can achieve in high school,” said Parker. “We are extremely excited for the opportunity to honor these athletes at the level they deserve for everything they have overcome and accomplished, and we really want to give them the rock star treatment with this awards show. We can’t wait to get things kicked off and begin accepting nominations.”
