Brock Safety MVP Contest
Holy Innocents’ Episcopalian School in Atlanta, Georgia Won $5,000 Worth of Sports Equipment in the Brock Safety MVP National Contest!
When the game clock hits zero and the final buzzer sounds, all that’s left are the stats. But win or lose, each team names one most valuable player for the game. What if safety was named the MVP in every game? What if safety was as important to each player as winning?
That thought prompted Safer Sports from the Ground Up sponsor Brock International, whose PowerBase YSR is the first synthetic turf safety and drainage layer engineered specifically for young athletes, to launch its Safety MVP national contest to promote the importance of playing field safety nationwide. Middle school and high school students nationwide entered the contest by answering one simple question – “Why is safety as important to your team as winning?”
We received some terrific videos and print entries that included photography. Atlanta high school juniors Brendan Rosenberg and Jacob Schlanger took top honors in the competition. Rosenberg, a student at Holy Innocents’ Episcopal School and Schlanger, who attends North Springs High School, took a humorous “Sports Center” approach to the topic. Their video, posted below, features interviews with a student-athlete and safety tips from Holy Innocents Football Coach and Junior Boys Dean Ryan Livzey. Holy Innocents’ Episcopal School will receive the competition’s grand prize of $5,000 worth of sports equipment for their team in time for the start of the 2013 – 2014 school year.
