Yesterday we counted down 2014’s Greatest Hits and shared our Hoopie Award Honorable Mentions. Now it’s time to announce the winners of our eighth Annual Hoopie Awards, although we’d really like to be clear that all of our nominees are winners in our book. We love them all! The call for preliminary submissions for the awards went up at the start of the year. They were screened, compiled and presented to 50 randomly selected hoopers who made themselves available to serve on our Hooping Academy Finalists Review Panel. They voted for their top 5 selections in each of the award categories and those votes resulted in our official 2015 Hoopie Award nominees. Voting began on Tuesday, closed on Friday, and now the time has come to reveal our winners.
We’d like to thank everyone who participated in the awards celebration this year from start to finish, giving an extra special thank you again to those who served on the review panel this year. We’d like to congratulate all of the nominees one more time and give a big hug to Hoopin’ Annie of World Hoop Day for taking on the responsibility of validating the computerized vote counts again this year too. And now, with thousands of votes cast in a record breaking awards celebration, we proudly present your 2015 Hoopie Award Winners:

They live in Los Angeles, California, USA, and the very appropriate soundtrack for this is “Firestone” featuring Conrad by Kygo, and you can get a copy of it for your own collection quite easily on iTunes.
