“Play Healthy” & Win a Trip to New York City

Our friends at the Partnership for Drug-Free Kids, in conjunction with Major League Baseball Charities, are collecting nominations for their annual Play Healthy Awards. The awards are an extension of both organizations’ efforts to educate families on the risks of steroids and performance-enhancing substances, and to recognize youth coaches and student athletes who embody the spirit of teamwork and healthy, drug-free competition.

You’re invited to nominate any and all extraordinary youth sports coaches and student athletes (including yourself). Each winner — one coach and one athlete — will receive a trip for him/herself and one special guest to New York City!

Each winner’s complete gift package will include:

  • A trip for 2 to New York City
  • 2 tickets to the Partnership for Drug-Free Kids Gala at Gotham Hall on Thursday, November 20th, 2014 where the winners will be honored. Winners must attend or send a representative.
  • $500 gift card to a New York City sporting goods store to be determined
  • A plaque presented by Major League Baseball Charities and the Partnership for Drug-Free Kids

To enter, submit your nomination form here: www.drugfree.org/playhealthy by Friday, October 31st, 2014. 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 applications consist of general information about the athlete or coach and a short essay.
