Allegan County News Athlete of the Month

August Nominations

Editor’s Note: While we do not have photos to accompany this innaugural contest, The Allegan County News hopes to include photos in the rest of the nomination announcements.

We are excited to announce the first monthly contest for the Allegan County News Athlete of the Month.

In the first issue of each month, the five boys and five girls who have been nominated will be featured in the sports section. They will also be featured on our Facebook page and website the first Monday of each month.

Winners will be decided by a public vote. To vote for an athlete, like their picture on Facebook. Share the picture to your Facebook to help your choice receive more votes.

The winners for each month will be announced the second Monday on Facebook and our website and in the sports section of the second issue of each month. They will receive a gift bag with prizes commemorating their accomplishments.

Although August is a short month for athletics, our sports department has pulled together a list of deserving athletes.
