Best Female Action Sports Athlete ESPY Award
The Best Female Action Sports Athlete ESPY Award has been presented annually since 2004 to the female, irrespective of nationality or sport contested, adjudged to be the best action sports athlete in a given calendar year. In 2002 and 2003, the non-gender-specific Best Action Sports Athlete ESPY Award was presented, but the award was bifurcated by gender prior to the selection of the candidates for the 2005 ESPY Awards.
Balloting is undertaken over the Internet by fans from amongst choices selected by the ESPN Select Nominating Committee, and awards are conferred in June to reflect performance and achievement from the twelve months preceding presentation.
