VOTE: Player of the Week – Week 9 is proud to present the Mella Window & Carpet Cleaning Player of the Week for the 2021 regular season. Players will be nominated from the Cincinnati, Northern Kentucky and Eastern Indiana areas throughout the season.

Each week a group of nominees will be selected from a large list of some of the area’s top performances and will be included in an online voting poll to determine a winner. The poll will launch weekly on Sundays. Voters can vote once per hour, per IP address (we track it on the back end so cheating will result in votes being voided) through Wednesday at 12:00 PM Eastern weekly.

Once a player has won, they are ineligible to be nominated a second time. Players can only be nominated up to a max of three times during the course of the season.

All of the season winners will be recognized and receive a plaque at the Year in Review Show in February of 2022 (more details announced once season concludes).
