KANSAS CITY, Mo. (July 25, 2014) – The National Center for Fathering (NCF) is hosting a social media contest on Facebook titled #FathersStandTall starting Monday, July 28 and ending Monday, August 11 for the chance to win one of ten $50 Visa gift cards!
In early July, NCF announced their partnership with Sony Pictures on the movie release of When the Game Stands Tall, out in theatres Friday, August 22. NCF is proud to endorse When the Game Stands Tall because the story highlights the importance of good character, integrity and the incredible impact a father and coach can have on the lives of young men.
Through this partnership, NCF encourages fathers and father figures to submit entries through Facebook for #FathersStandTall. Submissions should be photos of fathers or father figures coaching, practicing, playing or interacting with their child(ren) and a caption explaining how they teach the child(ren) to stand tall. All captions should also include a tag to the facebook page (@fathers.com) and the hashtag #FathersStandTall as well as follow the contest rules listed on the Facebook page.
Winners will be informed Thursday, August 14 and announced via Facebook on Friday, August 15. Prizes will be mailed out that day. Winners will be randomly chosen from entries. NCF encourages fans of the page to participate with positive, uplifting posts with advice on how to stand tall for other fathers and father figures in order to work together to give each child a better future and to create a positive fathering legacy.
The National Center for Fathering (www.fathers.com) is a national nonprofit organization that offers innovative tools and resources that inspire and equip fathers to be more involved with their children in order to give each child a better future and to create a positive fathering legacy. NCF distinguishes itself by being the only organization that offers a simple framework for fathering including unique male-engagement programs, training, curricula and a resource-rich website.  NCF also has widely-implemented programming such as WATCH D.O.G.S. (Dads of Great Students), a one-of-a-kind school based father involvement program that works to support education and safety.
