USQ Member Awards

For the past several years, USQ has done an award program for teams who attended US Quidditch Cup. We also used to do specific member awards at the end of every season. Due to the impacts of COVID-19, USQ Cup 13 has been canceled, but that doesn’t mean that there are no awards to give out! We are bringing both programs back this year, and merging them under one umbrella of member awards. There will be three categories of awards, for teams, events, and players. 

Please view previous winners below; for more detailed information, you can review past years' complete nominees information in the sidebar.
