I wanted to share some exciting news with you about Sports Illustrated Kids!
For the first time ever, Sports Illustrated Kids is naming a “SportsParent of the Year” and would like to invite you and your readers 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.
This is an EXCLUSIVE contest just for bloggers and their readers!
Deadline for contest entries is 9/24
The “2012 SportsParent of the Year” Grand Prize Winner will receive a $1,000 VISAgift cardto support his/her child’s or community team’s sports needs!The winner may alsobe featured in an upcoming issue of Sports Illustrated Kids magazine and/or on SIKids.com.
