Vote in this month’s challenge!

During the 2014-2015 school year, TribLocal readers nominated more than 250 stars of track, field, court and water. Your votes gave 112 students the title of Athlete of the Month during challenges across the suburbs from September to May. It was a great show of support and a fun way to honor a group of highly talented and dedicated high school athletes.

This year we’re back with a brand new challenge for our readers: Athlete of the Month will feature students from more than 250 high schools, making it the biggest challenge ever! Our experts will present three to five finalists for each zone. You’ll vote for the winners.

Each Athlete of the Month will receive a commemorative plaque, be featured in print and online, and his or her school will be awarded $250, presented by Country Financial.

It all begins at noon Sept. 10, when voting starts for the season’s first challenge. You’ll have only one week to vote, so don’t get stuck on the sidelines!
