Poll Now Open for October Student Athlete of Month
We are excited to announce that our second Student Athlete of the Month poll is now open.
J-Dubbs Signature Subs of Portland has partnered with The Portland Beacon to sponsor this award. The monthly winner will receive a free sub of his/her choice from J-Dubbs Signature Subs, and will be the subject of a piece in The Portland Beacon highlighting his/her accomplishment.
Monthly winners will be entered for a chance at the Student Athlete of the Year award, and a free party platter from J-Dubbs Signature Subs.
To be nominated, the student athlete must attend either Portland High School or St. Patrick School, and be a member of a varsity sports program at his/her school. Nominations may be made by a member of their high school coaching staff, their athletic director, principal, or a school recognized student government organization at his/her school. Nominations will also be accepted from The Portland Beacon contributing writers.
