WEST BEND - U.S. Cellular issued a request to the West Bend community to nominate their favorite coaches, who are leaders and have a positive impact on their schools, players and community. The program is open to K-12 school-affiliated and assistant coaches of any sport.  

“Many only see what these coaches do on the field, and U.S. Cellular knows the Most Valuable Coaches also do so much off the field, investing their time behind the scenes, to prepare their teams for the next game and the next step in their lives,” a news release said.  

Nominations are accepted through 11:59 a.m. on Sept. 10 at www.themostvaluablecoach.com.

Once the Top 50 coaches have been selected from the nominees, public voting will determine the final 15 coaches. The top three winning coaches will be selected by a combination of public voting along with a qualified panel of judges selected by U.S. Cellular, including Green Bay Packers receiver Randall Cobb.  

The final three winning coaches will each receive a donation to help their school. The top three coaches will receive a $50,000, $20,000 and $10,000 donation, respectively. The first place coach will also receive a Samsung tech prize package, valued at $30,000, for their school.
