Dear Supporter, 

Do you know an inspiring youth coach? How about a teen with excellent sportsmanship?

The Partnership at, in conjunction with Major League Baseball Charities, again celebrates extraordinary individuals on and off the playing field with the fourth annual Commissioner's Play Healthy Awards contest.

Both organizations are committed to educating families on the risks of steroids and performance-enhancing substances. Our Play Healthy website and Play Healthy Awards are just two examples of how we encourage teamwork and healthy, drug-free competition.

One winning youth coach and one student athlete will receive prizes, including a trip for themselves and one special guest to New York City. They will also receive:

    ^Two tickets each to The Partnership at's annual Winter  Wish Gala at Gotham Hall on December 3, 2013, where they will be honored;

    ^A $500 gift card to a sporting goods store;

    ^A commemorative plaque presented at the gala; and

    ^The opportunity to be featured prominently on

We're taking nominations now at

We look forward to recognizing our nation's best youth sports leaders.
