Today's featured list

This star symbolizes the featured content on Wikipedia.

On Mondays and Fridays, the Main Page includes a section where an introduction to one of Wikipedia's featured lists is displayed. The current month's queue can be found here. The lists appearing on the main page are scheduled by the featured list director Giants2008.

To appear on the main page, a list must already be featured. For more information on the featured list promotion process, please see Wikipedia:Featured list candidates, and the featured list criteria. In addition to being featured, a main page blurb must be drafted, which introduces the subject of the list. Main page blurbs are roughly 1,000 characters in total length, with no endlines, reference tags, alternate names, or extraneous bolding, although the link to the specified featured list should be bolded. You can submit a list at Wikipedia:Today's featured list/submissions.

At the moment, lists are scheduled by the FL director or the FL delegates, although we will eventually be devising a community-based system for selecting each day's list. We encourage editors to submit and review as many blurbs as possible. If you notice a problem with an upcoming main-page featured list, please leave a message talkpage here.

Further ideas on how you can participate can be found at Wikipedia:Today's featured list/get involved.

Bradley Beal
Bradley Beal

The Mr. Show-Me Basketball honor recognizes the top male high school basketball player in the state of Missouri. The name of the award differs from other Mr. Basketball awards to reflect Missouri's state nickname, the Show-Me State. The award is presented annually by the Missouri Basketball Coaches Association. In order to be considered for the award, nominees must have been nominated by their high school coach, started in 90 percent of all games, must be high school seniors, and must be of "outstanding moral character". The first recipient of the honor was Monroe Douglas in 1985, who is the fourth all-time leading scorer for the Saint Louis Billikens men's basketball team in total points with 1,877 points and was named to their all-century team. Two sets of brothers, JarRon and Kareem Rush along with Tyler and Ben Hansbrough, have received the honor. Nine recipients of the Mr. Show-Me Basketball honor have been drafted into the NBA, the highest draft picks being both Bradley Beal (pictured) in the 2012 NBA draft and Jayson Tatum in the 2017 NBA draft with the third overall pick.
