Do you go above and beyond the call of parental duty to ensure your child is obtaining the most positive experience out of sports? Are you more about the fun and creating important lasting sports memories than worrying about the win? If this sounds like you or someone you know than hurry over to enter or nominate this special person in the Sports Illustrated Kids SportsParent of the Year Contest!
For the first time ever, Sports Illustrated Kids is naming a “SportsParent of the Year” and would like to invite you to enter or nominate an inspirational SportsParent! Modeled after the famed Sportsman and SportsKid of the Year awards, the SportsParent of the Year title will honor a parent who embodies the essence of sportsmanship.
After all, we wouldn’t have a Sportsman or SportsKid without the role model who initially set the example. A true SportsParent is dedicated to using sports to support family and community, not scores and trophies. The SportsParent will exemplify qualities that SI Kids aims to impart to children through a shared passion for sports, including fun, dedication, healthy living, and the value of community and team.
The “2012 SportsParent of the Year” Grand Prize Winner will receive a $1,000 VISA gift card to support his/her child’s or community team’s sports needs! The winner may also be featured in an upcoming issue of Sports Illustrated Kids magazine and/or on SIKids.com.
HURRY! Deadline for contest entries is 9/24.
Here’s how to enter:
1.) Decide who to submit for the award, whether it is yourself, your spouse or another parent
2.) Simply go to www.sikids.com/sportsparent and follow instructions to submit your nomination
3.) Remember there is (1) nomination per person or email account.
4.) “Like” the Sports Illustrated Kids Facebook page
5.) Share your entry with all of your friends and followers via social media (Twitter Hashtag: #SPOTY2012)
