American Athletic, Inc. (AAI) proudly presents the AAI Award to the most outstanding collegiate senior female gymnast in the country. AAI has been awarding this honor for over the last 30+ years and it has become considered the Heisman Trophy in Women’s gymnastics. The NCAA head coaches are asked to submit a nomination for the candidate or candidates of their choice. After all the nominations are in, the coaches then vote to narrow the field to the top 6 athletes. A final ballot is then cast and the coaches select the winner.
This year the coaches have nominated a list of 33 nominees to start the voting process. See the below video and follow along as the coaches narrow down the field.
