Vote for Jordyn Wieber for the AAU Sullivan Award

We received official word from the AAU Sullivan Committee that Jordyn Wieber, 2011 World Champion, has been chosen as a semi-finalist for the AAU Sullivan Award. Awesome!

 “Known as the ” Oscar” of sports awards, and older than The Heisman, the AAU Sullivan Award honors the outstanding amateur athlete in the United States. It has been presented annually by the AAU since 1930 as a salute to founder and past president of the Amateur Athletic Union, and a pioneer in amateur sports, James E. Sullivan. Based on the qualities of leadership, character, sportsmanship, and the ideals of amateurism, the AAU Sullivan Award goes far beyond athletic accomplishments and honors those who have shown strong moral character.”

VOTE for Jordyn Wieber to be The Real AAU (Amateur Athletic Union)  Sullivan Award winner for being the Top Amateur Athlete!


  It only takes a second. Voting ends March 9 so PLEASE VOTE.
