Do you know an inspiring youth coach?
Do you know an inspiring youth coach? How about a teen with excellent sportsmanship?
The Partnership at Drugfree.org, in conjunction with Major League Baseball Charities, is celebrating extraordinary individuals on and off the playing field who embody the spirit of teamwork and healthy, drug-free competition.
Nominate your community’s youth sports heroes for the third annual Commissioner’s Play Healthy Awards contest! The awards are an extension of both organizations’ comprehensive efforts, including the Play Healthy website, to educate families on the risks of steroids and performance-enhancing substances.
One winning youth coach and one student athlete will receive prizes, including a trip for themselves and one special guest to New York City. They will also receive:
Two tickets each to The Partnership at Drugfree.org’s annual Winter Wish Gala at Gotham Hall on December 4, 2012, where they will be honored;
A $1,000 gift card to a sporting goods store;
A commemorative plaque presented at the gala; and
The opportunity to be featured prominently on drugfree.org.
We’re taking nominations now at drugfree.org/playhealthy.
Get involved with the Commissioner’s Play Healthy Awards contest today!
We look forward to recognizing our nation’s best youth sports leaders.

P.S. There are only 2 weeks left for your chance to win a free trip to NYC!
Please note: A panel of judges will determine the winners by reviewing all nominees who demonstrate their commitment to fair, drug-free play and an overall healthy lifestyle. Additionally, the judges will evaluate the nominee’s commitment to leadership, sportsmanship and encouragement of others on and off the field. The deadline to enter is Friday, October 26, 2012.
