People’s Choice Award

The Sammies People’s Choice award gives special recognition to one of the current year’s finalists.

The People’s Choice selection is based solely on the total number of votes each finalist receives and is separate from the selection of the category award winners. An individual or team may win both the People’s Choice award and the category award for which they are a finalist.

Who Votes

Anyone may vote for the People’s Choice.
