Hometown Teams “Coach of the Community Contest”


They encourage us. They guide us. They support us. They challenge us. Coaches do much more than develop athletic skills in their players; they are an integral part of the sports loving experience and there is no game without them!

Pay tribute to your coach by nominating them for a “Coach of the Community” award by completing the statement “My coach is my hometown hero because…” Entries due on MDstories.com by June 6, 2015.

This contest is a part of the “Hometown Teams,” a Smithsonian Institution exhibition brought to you by the Maryland Humanities Council and Allegany Museum.  Don’t forget, the deadline for nominating your favorite coach is June 6, 2015!

The “Coach of the Community” will receive an award and twenty-five t-shirts from contest sponsor, Nightmare Graphics. (Nominators will receive a mystery prize.) One lucky winner will receive the grand prize of a two-night stay and two tickets to the December 2015 Army vs. Navy football game in Philadelphia. Winning Entries will also be shared on Maryland Stories and via social media.

The local winner will be announced on June 14 during Heritage Days
