Ninth annual Governor’s State of Sport Awards postponed until further notice.
Utah is known as the State of Sport — and for good reason! Through the years of appreciation for adventure, we have carved out a distinct reputation as the premier sport destination for Olympic, professional, amateur and action sporting events. By leveraging our world-class venues and awe-inspiring backdrops, Utah also has an established reputation as a top international sports destination.
From hosting the world during the 2002 Winter Olympic Games to providing an unmatched environment for professional, amateur and youth events, Utah truly has a strong sports heritage. As such, I am confident that the State of Sport Awards nominating committee selects honorees that embody excellence in Utah sports.
Our ninth annual event will honor top athletic performances from preps to pros to Olympic and Paralympic athletes. This year we welcome special guest Mark Davis, the owner of the NFL’s Las Vegas Raiders and present Gail Miller, chair of the Larry H. Miller Group of Companies and Scott Anderson, president and CEO of Zions Bank with Lifetime Achievement awards for their consistent and generous support of sports at all levels in our state.
In addition, we will present the fourth-annual Lewis Feild Bareback Riding Award, a tribute to the late PRCA Hall of Famer Lewis Field, to Stetson Wright as the top points leader in three of Utah’s major rodeos.
