Kerr is among 10 nominees for Female Player of the Year for the awards which recognise the top performers in the CONCACAF region, with the 24 year-old qualifying through her club team Sky Blue FC in the NWSL.
She joins a candidate list that includes names such as Carli Lloyd, Megan Rapinoe, Alex Morgan and Becky Sauerbrunn, with the award decided on by national team coaches and captains, media members and a fan vote.
Kerr appears a strong possibility to take the award after topping the fan vote, receiving 59% of the poll, followed by American striker Alex Morgan with 34%.
The winners of the CONCACAF Awards are set to be announced in coming days.
A win at the CONCACAF Awards would add another prize to a memorable year for the 24 year-old forward, where she has won numerous awards, including the AFC Player of the Year, a Julie Dolan Medal for the Westfield W-League's 2016/17 Season, the PFA Women's Footballer of the Year award, the NWSL's Most Valuable Player award and the ABC Sports Personality of the Year.
