Baseball Players: Here’s How You Can Earn a Chance at a $10K Scholarship

June 10, 2014

New Balance Game Changer Award

Are you an amateur baseball player who brings excellence to both your game and your community? You could win New Balance’s second annual Game Changer Award—a $10,000 college scholarship and $2,500 worth of New Balance products for the charity or community organization of your choice.

To enter, baseball players aged 15 and older must submit an essay detailing their efforts to elevate their game both on and off of the diamond. Four finalists will be chosen by New Balance, with input from Dustin Pedroia, Nick Swisher and C.J. Wilson. Finalists will need to document their accomplishments and submit videos to New Balance. The four finalists' videos will be available on the New Balance Baseball Facebook page and, where members of the public will have the opportunity to vote for their favorite.

“We are proud to associate our brand with athletes who share our values, believe in our brand and are committed to giving back to their communities,” said Mark Cavanaugh, general manager of sports marketing for New Balance. “New Balance values strength of character as much as we value accolades on the field.”

You have until June 22 to submit your essay. The four finalists will be notified on or around June 26. Public voting will run from July 21 to Aug. 5, and the winner will be announced in August at New Balance’s Area Code games in Long Beach, California.

Interested? Enter here—and good luck!
