Who is eligible to join the contest?
All high schools in Central Florida are eligible for entry in contest. Multiple sports programs per school may be entered for consideration. Any parent, student, teacher, or faculty member may submit their school’s program for consideration. Participating sports programs must not be currently under any other contractual agreement for their team’s uniforms. Winning teams must agree with all terms and conditions outlined in the sponsor agreement. If winning program is not able to comply with sponsorship agreement or is under contract with another company for their uniforms, the next most votes in their eligible category will be declared the winner. No purchase or payment of any kind is required to enter.
How does a school enter the contest?
Schools are nominated by coaches, staff, parents and students by submitting an essay that follows the theme “Rise Above”.
How are the finalists chosen?
Our team reads each and every essay submission and ranks them according to how they incorporated the theme “Rise Above” both in their communities and classrooms as well as on the field.
Who can vote and what are the rules?
Anyone is encouraged to watch the videos and essays submitted by the finalists and vote once every 24 hours. Complete Contest Rules may be found here.
What about vote fraud?
We have implemented a number of safeguards against fraudulent voting, which is typically done with programs called “bots” that continuously cast votes for the entry of the programmer’s choice. Dress the Champions is an exercise in ethics and sportsmanship, and cheating or fraudulent voting of any kind will not be tolerated. Any participant caught cheating will be immediately disqualified. Good sports only, please!
