Seahawks, CenturyLink, Q13 FOX set Athlete of the Week program

Here is a press release we received about a new Athlete of the Week program that starts this school year:

SEATTLE and RENTON, Wash. – The Seattle Seahawks, CenturyLink, Inc. (NYSE: CTL) and Q13 FOX (KCPQ) today announced the 2012 CenturyLink High School Athlete of the Week program. Beginning the week of September 3, one high school athlete per week from the State of Washington will be selected and recognized for their performance on the field and their commitment to the classroom and community. CenturyLink and the Seahawks will give a total of $10,000 high schools over the course of the ten-week program.

Each student-athlete will be recognized at their school in front of their families, peers and teachers, as well as at a Seahawks game. They will also earn a $1,000 grant from CenturyLink and the Seahawks for their school’s ASB fund, media recognition, tickets and sidelines passes to a Seahawks game and a customized 2012 Nike Seahawks jersey.

Coaches, teachers, parents and peers can nominate outstanding fall student athletes based on the student’s dedication to academics, community involvement, leadership, reliability, and weekly athletic performance. Fall sports include the following: Girls Cross Country, Boys Cross Country, Boys Football, Girls Soccer, Boys Soccer, Girls Swimming/Diving and Girls Volleyball. Each week, Seahawks and CenturyLink executives will select a nominated student who meets or exceeds the criteria.

“CenturyLink is honored to partner with the Seattle Seahawks and Q13 FOX on this great program,” said Sue Anderson, CenturyLink’s vice president and general manager for Seattle. “We believe in developing the potential of area student athletes and supporting their efforts within the community, both on and off the field.”
