Sports Illustrated Kids is looking for the SportsParent of the Year.
Hmmm… I wonder if I can nominate myself. Considering that I am a single parent and MOM and I’ve just arrived home from a weekend in Wyoming for a 3-day baseball tournament and can be found on the sideline of either soccer or baseball field on any given day of the week except Thursday I kind of think I deserve an award for that. In all seriousness I have literally put my life on hold for the season because I don’t think there is anything more important for kids to experience. Outside of, you know….. school Education is #1.
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.
HURRY! Deadline for contest entries is 9/24!
Here’s how to enter:
