Essay contest offered: What does sportsmanship mean to you?



"Sprint Sportsmanship For Life" program will be offered this fall. Students across the country will have an opportunity to become honorary members of the U.S. Ski Team, meet with U.S. Ski Team athletes, win trips to American Skiing Company resorts and earn $1,000 for their school by writing essays about good sportsmanship in the "Sprint Sportsmanship For Life" program.

Six U.S. Ski Team athletes will visit schools across the nation to lead discussions about education, competition and sportsmanship in all aspects of life.

To enter, submit an essay of 200 words or less describing what sportsmanship means to you not only in athletics, but in academics, at home and in relationships with friends and family. You may describe what you expect from role models.

Sixteen students will be selected as regional gold medalists. Thirteen of the 16 gold medalists will win a trip to an American Skiing Company resort.

The U.S. Ski Team athletes will judge the 16 gold medalists' essays to determine three national gold medalists, who will win a trip to a Sprint-sponsored ski event early next year and have an opportunity to meet and ski with U.S. Ski Team members.

For information about the program, call 1-877-624-8258.
