What are the Cheer Choice Awards?
The Cheer Choice Awards is a charity awards show that celebrates positivity on social media. Creators from all social media platforms are eligible to participate. The goal of the show is to raise money for charity while honoring creators who are making a difference using their platforms. It is held annually in the United States. In 2023 it is being held at the Palms Casino and Resort April 14-16. The weekend gives creators the ability to come together in one location to do something bigger than themselves by raising money to support families in need through Spread The Cheer USA and various other charities throughout the United States. The weekend consists of a Daytime Pool Party, evening Black and Gold Nightclub Party and the live awards show!

How is a creator nominated for a Cheer Choice Award?
Creators are nominated solely by their peers or by themselves and may be nominated for an award if they meet the initial nomination criteria. Initial vetting of all the nominees takes place by the volunteer vetting committee. Not all nominees will be accepted if they do not meet the criteria.
How does voting work?

Public voting begins immediately after the nomination period. Votes may be submitted by anyone on or off social media. There is an option to submit daily votes up to the daily max amount or vote by donating. 100% of all donations brought in by votes go directly to charity. Nominees may NOT vote for themselves. The initial voting round is called the preliminary round. The preliminary round allows for further vetting of the nominees to take place. For further details regarding this, you may refer to our terms and conditions. Votes and ranks are reset after the end of each round. During the last 24 hours of each round, the leaderboard will be turned off to verify accuracy and tabulation of votes and ensure equal opportunity prior to the rounds end. Nominees who move through to the next round will be displayed on the voting site at the start of the next round. The voting schedule for the 2023 Cheer Choice Awards is as follows:


Preliminary Round: November 1 – 11, 2022- 75% will move into the next round
