AMA Awards Program


AMA Awards Program Honors Top Contributors to Motorcycling

The motorcycling community owes its growth and success to its people. Overseen by the AMA Board of Directors, the AMA Awards Program recognizes the individuals and organizations who have demonstrated leadership, uncommon excellence, and dedication to the AMA mission of promoting the motorcycle lifestyle and protecting the future of motorcycling -- often while overcoming significant challenges or adversity.

Individuals are encouraged to submit the name of a person or group that may qualify as an applicant for one the AMA Awards listed below. Tell us the award for which you are nominating them, and why you think he or she (or the organization or group) is a standout in 500 or fewer words. (Please, no self-nominations.)

Note: The AMA Awards program is separate from the AMA Hall of Fame induction process. If you would like to submit a name for consideration by the Hall of Fame, please complete this form.

The AMA also recognizes outstanding achievement in numerous competition disciplines hrough the annual AMA Racing awards program. It is a separate program, and is administered by the AMA racing department. For information, click here.
