It's that time of year again -- time to let the rest of the world know which skater(s) you think performed the best on the ice during the 2014-15 competitive season.

Voting for the 2015 Readers' Choice Skater(s) of the Year Award (Michelle Kwan Trophy) will be conducted via icenetwork. The voting deadline is July 8.

Eligible skaters are:
  • The top five senior skaters in each discipline at the 2015 Prudential U.S. Figure Skating Championships
  • Medalists at the 2015 World Figure Skating Championships
  • Medalists at the 2015 World Junior Figure Skating Championships
  • The top three senior teams at the 2015 U.S. Synchronized Skating Championships

The winner will be announced in the August/September issue of SKATING, on the U.S. Figure Skating website and on icenetwork. The trophy will be presented to the winner(s) next season. Jeremy Abbott won the award in 2014.
