WHAT ARE THE SAMMY AWARDS ANYWAY?
The annual Scholar Athlete Milk Mustache of the Year (SAMMY) Award program recognizes 25 high school senior student athletes who demonstrate excellence in academics, athletics, community service, leadership and include milk as part of their healthy lifestyles.
The unique scholarship educates teens on the importance of making smart choices - like drinking lowfat milk, eating right and staying active. Twenty-five winners will earn the $7,500 scholarship, attend an awards ceremony with celebrity guests at The Milk House at ESPN's Wide World of Sports, and appear in their own milk mustache ad in USA TODAY.
Each year a celebrity panel of Milk Mustache athletes help select the winners. This year Andy Roddick, Steve Nash, Mia Hamm, Michelle Kwan and Tony Hawk served as judges to help select this yearâ€™s winners.
