1440 WROK wants to know who is the best of the best in the Stateline area throughout this winter sports season.
Every Friday we’ll be announcing the 1440 WROK Team of the Week. Each winning team will receive a $ 100 Visa gift card to use as part of their program. At the end of the winter season, all of the weekly winners will compete against each other in a final vote to crown our “Winter Team” and, most importantly, will receive a $ 500 Visa gift card to use towards their program.
Our Week 3 winner is the Freeport Wrestling Team !!
It’s a bit of a delayed reward, we’ve battled some COVIDs here at 1440 WROK, but we’re happy to have Freeport in the win column after being nominated 2 weeks in a row.
We are taking a 2 week break over the holiday season, but nominations are open when the vote returns the week of January 3. You can name your team below.
Before going into details. A HUGE thank you to Rock Valley College for sponsoring this and helping us get this program started.
So who is eligible to enter the competition?
Literally any high school team in the area that participates in an IHSA sanctioned sport.
Basketball boys and girls
Boys and Girls Bowling
Boys swimming and diving
how does the competition work?
Great question. We will be taking nominations every weekend starting today. On Monday, we will go through the nominations and select our finalists. Then on Monday, a message will be posted on 1440WROK.com where fans and supporters can go vote for their team until midnight on Thursday. On Friday we will announce the winner on the morning show.
Rinse and repeat for the rest of the season. We will be taking a 2 week break for Christmas and the final weekly winner will be for the week of February 28 – March 2. The $ 500 winner will be voted the following week.
How to submit a team?
Another great question. Each week we will publish a new post with a submission form. The one below is for this week’s contest. You have until Sunday evening to name your team. We will set up a poll on Monday and announce the winner on Friday. Then we do it all again from next week.
