Plot Synopsis

Each year in 2014, the KIDS' CHOICE SPORTS AWARDS have honored athletes in a wide range of kid-centric categories, allowing America's children to vote for their favorite athletes online. Nominees are selected based on two methods: analysis of Q scores, which rank the most recognizable and well-liked athletes according to kids; and the input of the Kids' Choice Sports Council, a group of professionals, athletes and others from the world of sports. Categories include: Best Male/Female Athlete; Favorite Newcomer; Favorite Catch; Best Save; Sickest Moves; King and Queen of Swag; Biggest Cannon; and many more. The inaugural ceremony, KIDS' CHOICE SPORTS 2014, hosted and executive produced by Michael Strahan, was broadcast live from UCLA's Pauley Pavilion on Thursday, July 17, 2014 at 8pm ET (live)/PT (tape), with performances by Pharrell Williams and Florida George Line. Starting with the 2015 event, KIDS' CHOICE SPORTS featured athletic feats and challenges instead of musical performances.
Hosted for a third consecutive year by Seattle Seahawks' quarterback Russell Wilson, KIDS CHOICE SPORTS 2017 took place on on Thursday, July 13, 2017 at UCLA's Pauley Pavilion in Los Angeles and was broadcast three days later on Sunday, July 16 at 8pm ET/PT on Nickelodeon, with a simulcast on NickToons and TeenNick. American competitive swimmer Michael Phelps was honored with the Legend Award at this year's show in recognition of his world record-breaking achievements, unrivaled talent and outstanding sportsmanship in and out of the pool. Upon receiving his golden mohawked award, Phelps was doused from head to toe in glistening gold slime. Throughout the show, three kids competed in the Triple Shot Challenge for an opportunity to each win $50,000. Klay Thompson, Abby Wambach and Dak Prescott served as coaches while fans cheered on Nate Simon (of Riverside, CA), Evelyn Briggs (of Woodinville, WA), and Austin Fernandes (of Kent, WA), as they each attempted to make their shot across basketball, soccer and football challenges. The slimed-filled celebration also featured five grand-scale, sports-themed challenges:

- DeAndre Jordan and Andre Drummond scaled Slime Mountain, battled obstacles and slid their way to victory and the Kids' Choice Sports gold medal;

- In the Nick Cannon-hosted Beats 'N Seats challenge, Lindsey Vonn, P.K. Subban, Prince Fielder, Breanna Stewart and Gabby Douglas competed in the ultimate game of musical chairs;

- In the Pedal Pop challenge, Von Miller, Skylar Diggins-Smith and Shaun White went head-to-head to see who can pedal the fastest and inflate a large slime-filled balloon until it pops;

- Simone Biles, Emmanuel Sanders, Landon Collins, Aly Raisman, Cree Cicchino, Ella Anderson, Madisyn Shipman and Riele Downs participated in the KCS Relay, an obstacle-ridden race throughout the entire venue led by team captains Russell Wilson and Michael Strahan;

- And Klay Thompson, Jimmy Butler, Kel Mitchell and Tony Cavalero faced off in the High Hoops challenge, a five-shot three-point contest that featured human basketball nets on wires.

In a special moment during the ceremony, Nickelodeon presented two-time Olympic Gold medalist Simone Manuel with the first-ever #SeeHer Award, honoring her inspirational achievements which have broken down multiple barriers for women and girls. The #SeeHer movement aims to eliminate all gender bias by recognizing the importance of accurately portraying girls and women in television and advertising.
