Winners are selected by a panel of nationwide sportswriters and commentators.

In 2002-03, Gatorade expanded the award program to include a year-end event bringing together its 10 National Players of the Year and naming one male and one female as the top high school athletes in the country – the Gatorade High School Athletes of the Year. The 2006-07 event will mark the award’s 5th anniversary
