Continuing its mission to champion sportsmanship, leadership, and citizenship, the Rose Bowl Institute (RBi) is excited to launch a sportsmanship story contest by eliciting stories from around the world featuring instances of inspiring acts of sportsmanship.
The RBi welcomes content from any sporting event or activity, ranging from one’s backyard to a professional field of play. A $2500 cash prize will go to the chosen winner of this sportsmanship story contest. Selected submissions will also be highlighted on the Rose Bowl Institute’s website, featured in podcasts and Rose Table Dialogues, and published in future magazine columns alongside other media to serve as examples of how sportsmanship can enhance one’s life and surroundings.
Written content submissions should be 300 words or less, and selfie videos describing moments of sportsmanship should be 1-5 minutes long. Please submit nominations online at rosebowlinstitute.org.
The Institute strives to recognize, promote, and award sportsmanship at all levels and by stakeholders in sports and society. The goal of sportsmanship is not simply to win, but to pursue victory with honor by giving one’s best effort. This requires four key values: fairness, integrity, responsibility, and respect.
