WWE superstars and divas often make school visits throughout the country throughout the year, discussing how they dealt with bullying and stereotypes growing up and even into adulthood. They encourage students to Be a STAR.
Teachers, coaches or family members can nominate a South Florida youth, describing how that youth has been a STAR. It can be helping a family member, a classmate, a teammate, school or something else. You may Be a STAR and not even know it.
Three youth - selected by random drawing - will be invited as Be a STAR finalists to the WWE show at the BB&T Center on Friday, June 7 in Sunrise. Each finalist will receive two tickets to the show and a WWE prize pack. One of the finalists will be drawn as the grand prize winner and participate in a meet-n-greet.
To nominate someone, e-mail Miami Herald Youth Sports Editor Jim Varsallone email@example.com.
