If you are a student athlete aged 14-19 with physical disabilites, then riddle me this: How has sport positively impacted your life as a person with a physical disability? Think you can write an awesome essay or submit a brilliant video answering that question? If so, you may win a trip to the 2010 Payalympic Winter Games in Vancouver on March 12-21st.

Also, if you’re a coach, teacher or program leader involved with student athletes with physical disabilites, you too can win an opportunity to go. Write a great one-page essay describing your work with students with physical disabilities.

If you win, you’ll go the games, meet the great athletes, attend the Opening Ceremonies, and of course meet some awesome new friends with similar interests as you. You must apply by December 1st, and you can go here for more info.
