Nominations are accepted at the beginning of each year, and announcements are made at the Opening Ceremonies of the Summer Games.

2016 HALL OF FAME INDUCTEES
MOST INSPIRATIONAL ATHLETES
Most Inspirational Athletes (MIA's) are selected at three of the state competitions, John L. Cassidy Heartland Winter Games, State Basketball & Cheerleading Tournament and Summer Games. Basketball and Summer Games athletes are nominated by their coaches at the competition, and then selected by a panel of judges. Winter Games athletes come from several states and therefore the MIA is selected by a panel of judges at the event.
The most recent MIA's are:
Summer Games 2016
Leora Kennedy, Dodge City Dodgers
State Basketball/Cheerleading 2016 - Peter Newport, Topeka Junior Blues
