Candidate Region 13-16 Information

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.

Community Trust Bank has generously sponsored a VIP table (seats 10) for candidates in Regions 13, 14, 15 and 16.  (Because we have girls co-candidates in Region 14, Hazard and Leslie Co. will each get 5 tickets).  If you wish to share your appreciation to Community Trust Bank for their sponsorship, letters can be mailed to Community Trust Bank -Attn: Tracie Stewart, PO Box 2947, Pikeville KY 41502 or they can be dropped off at your local branch.

Click here to complete our guest list form to let us know who will be sitting at this table from your group as soon as possible but no later than Friday, March 3rd (you will NOT need to include your candidate at this table).  For others who are 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.
