The annual contest is sponsored by Camden’s Dr. Larry Parrott and is run by the Camden/Kershaw County Recreation Department.

In order to be eligible for the cash stipends, all contestants must have participated in a C/KCRD sponsored sports activity. All entrants must also have written an essay on “How youth sports can help prepare me for the future.”
