The selection process is also overseen by a panel comprising former student-athletes and representatives from NCAA member schools and conferences.

The 2024 recipients include Nicole Aunapu Mann, Jerry Azumah, Shannon Boxx, John Cena, Misty May-Treanor, and Cindy Parlow Cone. The 2024 Silver Anniversary Award recepients will receive their awards on January 10th during the NCAA Convention Welcome and Awards Presentation in Phoenix.
