The brightest stars of the sports world—including Stephen Curry, Ronda Rousey and Usain Bolt—will be celebrated at Nickelodeon’s Kids’ Choice Sports 2016 Awards, and fans watching at home will have the opportunity to participate.
When the show airs July 17, kids will be able to interact throughout the broadcast by engaging with photos and videos, voting live, and accessing exclusive content starring the athletes.
Nickelodeon has lined up a robust digital offering for Kids’ Choice Sports, supplying content before, during and after the show on Nick.com/sports, the Nick App and on social media through Twitter, Instagram and Facebook.
The show—which was taped July 14—will premiere as a simulcast on Nickelodeon, TeenNick and Nicktoons. Several encores will follow the July 17 simulcast, and the telecast will also be available via Nickelodeon on Demand.
For the second year in a row the show was hosted by Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson, and athletes will be honored in 12 different categories.
NBA All-Star Kobe Bryant was presented with the Kids’ Choice Sports Legend Award in recognition of his record-breaking achievements. Bryant was doused in gold slime while accepting the award, a glittering upgrade from Nickelodeon’s signature green.
Other winners include LeBron James (Best Male Athlete), Alex Morgan (Best Female Athlete), Simone Biles (Favorite Newcomer), Stephen Curry (Clutch Player of the Year), Ronda Rousey (Don’t Try This At Home) and Rob Gronkowski (Biggest Powerhouse).
