We’ve often thought we have the best production team in the MIAA. Now, we have the awards to prove it.”

Awards are presented in 14 categories, with each category divided into three groups based upon school size and conference affiliations to promote fairness. Nearly 1,000 entries were received for the 2016-17 year.
