Overwatch League Commissioner Nate Nanzer revealed on Twitter that the Dennis Hawelka Award will be awarded during the Overwatch League All Star Weekend.

November 8th, 2017 was an extremely sad day for the Overwatch and esports community as a whole, as members learned that veteran Overwatch player Dennis "INTERNETHULK" Hawelka has passed away. The news sent shock waves throughout the Overwatch world, as INTERNETHULK was regarded as one of the most positive, hard working and kind members of the passionate community. 

In order to honor the memory of the former Team EnVy player and coach for Rogue and Team Lqiuid, the Overwatch League announced on November 11th, 2017 that it would be creating the Dennis Hawelka Award to honor the dedication and passion that INTERNETHULK brought in the guidance that he provided to the competitive scene of Bliizard Entertainment's first person shooter. 

According to the official description of the Dennis Hawelka Award, the "award will be presented at the end of each Overwatch League season to the player that we deem to have had the most positive impact on the community."

The community has since been curious to learn more about when exactly the Dennis Hawelka Award would be presented for the inaugural season of the league. 

However, league Commissioner Nate Nanzer has answered this curiosity by revealing on Twitter that the Dennis Hawelka Award will be presented to its recipient at the Overwatch League All Star Weekend that is set to take place between August 25 - 26.
