The 30-member candidate classes will be narrowed to 10 finalists midway through the regular season, and those 10 names will be placed on the official ballot. Ballots will be distributed through a nationwide voting system to media, coaches and fans, who will select the female candidate who best exemplifies excellence in the four Cs of community, classroom, character and competition.
