The Olympics Opening Ceremonies are Friday when the world’s best athletes compete for gold.
But those aren’t the only great athletes. We have great athletes all around us, on the Little League field, on the local swim team, playing tennis at the local community court and everywhere we look. These athletes may be the next Olympians or they may just be good athletes. We want to celebrate them and their achievements.
Please upload pictures of your local athletes (no matter how young, as long as you are the parent if you’re uploading a child’s picture). Let us know who is in the picture, what town he or she is from and maybe even a bit about that person and the sport he or she is playing. We also want to know in the caption what town you’re from and any other information you think we should know.
This is part of Patch’s summer Picture of the Week series, where we’re asking you for your best pictures on a certain topic each week. We’re enjoying seeing what pictures you have to share and look forward to more. We’ve added a little incentive. The winning submission will get a Patch prize pack, which includes a very soft Patch Tshirt, a baseball cap and maybe some other Patch stuff, but more importantly, you’ll get bragging rights.
We’ll be taking photo submissions each week from 4 a.m. Monday through noon Friday. Voting will begin at 4 a.m. Saturday and end at 9 a.m. Monday, so make sure to check back over the weekend to vote for your favorite picture.
To upload your photo, just click on the "Upload Photos and Videos" button. If you have more questions,.
