CityMD Urgent Care Joins New York Sports Connection to Sponsor Teen Sportsmanship Essay Contest
CityMD, an urgent care provider with offices throughout the five boroughs and the metro area, has joined forces with New York Sports Connection to present NYSC's first annual teen essay contest to encourage sportsmanship in New York City.
"CityMD is proud to support New York Sports Connection and its shared commitment to healthy, happy and active kids,” said Dr. Richard Park, CityMD's CEO. CityMD's support is helping underwrite a top prize of $500 for the essay or essays that best describe “what sportsmanship means to me” according to the contest rules.
The essay contest ends April 30, 2015, and is open to City residents who are between twelve and 18 years of age by the entry deadline. More information is available at http://www.newyorksportsconnection.com/
“New York City is the greatest sports town in the world,” says Finkel, a Manhattan resident who is the father of two young athletes. “But too often, it's the players behaving badly who get all the attention. With our essay contest, we want to promote virtues like fair play, self-control, and respect for others, and celebrate stories of good sportsmanship among young people in Brooklyn, The Bronx, Manhattan, Queens and Staten island.”
New York Sports Connection is also raising prize money for the contest through a crowd funding campaign on Indiegogo.com at https://www.indiegogo.com/
