Schools are nominated by coaches, staff, parents and students by submitting an essay that follows the theme “Overcoming Adversity”.
Our celebrity judges will read each and every essay submission and rank them according to how they incorporated the theme “Overcoming Adversity” both in their communities and classrooms as well as on the field.
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.
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!
