University of Iowa's "Wave" nominated for international award

Posted: Updated:
IOWA CITY (KWWL) -

"The Wave" at the University of Iowa has had people talking about it across the country.

It's now up for another award, and this one is international.

"The Wave" has been nominated for a Laureus award, for best sporting moment of the year. It's the only U.S. nomination in that category.

After every home game's first quarter, people wave to the kids inside the University of Iowa Stead Family Children's Hospital. It's been considered one of the best new traditions in college sports.

Back in December, "The Wave" got Disney's Spirit Award.

The Laureus World Sports Awards will be held in Monaco on February 27th. Click here to vote.
