Little League Southeastern Region: Region Awards Program
Since 2013, Little League Southeastern has recognized individuals for their commitment to, and participation in, the Little League program. The Southeastern Region program is in conjunction with the Little League International Awards program. While many of the categories are the same as the International program, nomination for a Region award does not include nomination into the International program.
Each recipient will be invited to the Region Headquarters in Warner Robins, GA during a Baseball or Softball Region Tournament.
You can nominate an individual through either the below online or offline nomination ballots. If you have any questions regarding these Awards please contact Matt Weber, Assistant Southeastern Region Director at mweber@LittleLeague.org.
