For the first time ever, Sports Illustrated Kids is naming a “SportsParent of the Year” and would like to invite us to enter or nominate an inspirational SportsParent! 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.
Nominating either yourself or someone in your life is really easy! I promise! I already nominated Lisa over OhBoyOhBoyOhBoy.com! She is starting a travel baseball team is very active as a sporting parent in her community! Her picture of little football player this week showed her pride and love for being a sports parent for sure!
The “2012 SportsParent of the Year” Grand Prize Winner will receive a $1,000 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. Deadline for contest entries is 9/24.
Plus it isn’t too late to nominate your exceptional young athlet for this year’s “SportsKid of the Year” award, sponsored by Goldfish. This award honors a young athlete, age seven to fifteen, for superior performance on the field, in the classroom and in service to the community. To nominate your athlete go HERE.
