Sports Illustrated Kids: SportsParent of the Year Contest‏

My son is an avid sports collector and loves getting his issue of Sports Illustrated Kids in the mail each month.  He knows more sports facts and stats that I even knew possible, it is something that he enjoys and connects with.

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. 

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 

Deadline for contest entries ends 9/24.

As a special offer for my wonderful readers, SI Kids is providing their August tablet issue COMPLETELY FREE! The tablet edition has everything that the print magazine has, but also includes bonus photos and interactive features like games and sports cards that kids will love! Simply download the SI Kids app on iPad or Kindle Fire, and use these credentials to access this latest issue:
