We are excited to announce that our December 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.

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.

You may vote as often as you would like. The poll will close at 10:00 PM on Thursday, December 27th.
