The Mascot Hall of Fame recognizes there are hundreds of awesome mascot programs out there and we want to help every one of them get the recognition they deserve. This year we are introducing something we are very excited about . . .

2022 Mascot Hall of Fame Awards!

Globie & Southpaw

The Mascot Hall of Fame Awards program allows for all mascots across the land to be nominated in one of several categories and will compete against mascot programs at the same level. We will accept nominations from teams, schools, and the general public, and will ask the mascots nominated to accept their nominations to be considered. The Mascot Hall of Fame will review the accepted nominations and craft separate ballots for each award category and mascot level.

Once the ballots are set, voting will be 100% based on public vote. Each ballot will allow for a single mascot to be selected within its category and everyone can vote daily for each category and level. The awards and categories are listed below.
