We truly appreciate your outstanding contributions to Special Olympics Kansas.

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:
