As a poet, who enjoys all kinds of different writing, 49ers wide receiver Josh Morgan knows great reading material when he sees it.
It looks like Morgan will be seeing a lot more reading material after he agreed to be the judge of the 2009 49ers Kids Club Presented by See’s Candies Essay Contest.
Kids Club members (ages 14 and under) can submit an essay in 500 words or less to describe what characteristics a football player would need to be a great 49ers player. If you’re not yet a member of the 49ers Kids Club, you can click here to sign yourself or your child up for the Kids Club presented by See’s Candies to enter the contest.
“It’s a cool thing to be involved with,” Morgan said of his role with the contest. “I think it’s going to be fun to read somebody else’s writing and it’s going to be interesting to see what the kids have to say.”
The contest’s winner will get to meet Morgan at team headquarters, as well as receive an autographed authentic NFL football signed by Morgan and two-tickets to watch the 49ers take on the Jacksonville Jaguars on Nov., 29 at Candlestick Park.
Second place will receive two tickets to the Jacksonville game and a 49ers gift bag, and the third best essay will receive a 49ers t-shirt and hat.
“It’s going to be exciting for me to meet the winner. I’m sure it’s going to be a great experience for both of us,” Morgan said with a big smile.
At the end of your essay, please include your name, age, mailing address, and phone number so that we may contact you if you are the lucky winner. All essays must be submitted to the 49ers Kids Club by Friday, November 20, 2009.
