Information for Candidates / Parents / Coaches

Congratulations!  To be selected as a candidate for Mr. or Miss Kentucky Basketball is a huge accomplishment and we can’t wait to celebrate with you during the 2023 Mr. and Miss Kentucky Basketball Awards Ceremony.

The 2023 Mr. and Miss Kentucky Basketball Awards Ceremony will be hosted by the Kentucky Lions Eye Foundation in person at the Griffin Gate Marriott Resort in Lexington, KY on Sunday, March 19th at 5:30 PM (ET).  Candidates are asked to please arrive by 5 PM (ET) for a quick rehearsal prior to the event.  We will also have virtual viewing ticket options so that individuals who are not able to travel or wish to watch from home can view the live event virtually.

To help us prepare for the event please complete the following checklist and submit all information needed as soon as possible but no later than March 1, 2023.

For those interested in virtually viewing or attending the awards ceremony in person, ticket / table information can be found by clicking here. Your candidate receives free entry and will not need a ticket.  He/She will sit at designated tables for the candidates during the awards ceremony so your candidate should not be included in your list of guests if you are purchasing tickets / tables.

If you have any questions or need assistance please contact Jennifer Hunt Spurling ( / 270-999-4887).
