Throughout the month of November DGA will pick one Spirit of the Game story finalist at the end of each week. The finalists will be announced each Monday and will win a “Steady” Ed Ash Freestyle disc just for being a finalist. The contest will reset each week and fans have the opportunity to either re-submit the same story, or submit an entirely new story. Each contestant will have to share their weekly submission to get votes and increase their chances of winning.
Finalists are chosen based on the amount of votes their submission receives that week, as well as judging by an in house panel. At the end of the contest, after four finalists have been chosen, DGA will then pick the grand prize winner who will win a Mach X basket.
Only one submission per fan, per week, and you are allowed to submit the same story each week if you are not a finalist. Finalists cannot win more than one week, so please do not submit another story if you have already been chosen as a finalist.
