Plot Synopsis

Starting in 2015, THE SPORTS HUMANITARIAN OF THE YEAR AWARDS will annually honor athletes, teams, nonprofits and members of the sports industry for using sport to serve communities and make a positive impact on society. Awards include: The Sports Humanitarian of the Year Award, which is given to an athlete whose continuous, demonstrated leadership has created a positive impact on their community through sports; The Sports Humanitarian Team of the Year, which represents a sports team (and their community relations department or foundation) that demonstrates how teamwork between athletes and their team's community relations or foundations can create a significant impact on a community or cause; and the Stuart Scott ENSPIRE Award (ESPN + inspire), which celebrates and honors any organization or person who has used the power of sport by taking risk and using an innovative approach to aid the disadvantaged, save lives, alleviate suffering and maintain and protect human dignity.
The inaugural event -- hosted by Laila Ali from the Conga Room at L.A. Live on Tuesday, July 14, 2015 -- was broadcast by ESPN as a half-hour special on Thursday, July 23, 2015 at 8:30pm ET/5:30pm PT.
