One Super Dad to Win Super Bowl Tickets
Dads: Picture this. It's Feb. 5, and you're sitting with your child at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis waiting for the kickoff for Super Bowl XLVI. Your tickets, valued at $2,000 each, didn't cost you a penny.
Fathers wanting a chance to realize this fantasy can opt to enter a contest designed to showcase the characteristics of a good father: loving, coaching and modeling. The National Center for Fathering (Fathers.com) is running the contest to shine the spotlight on "championship dads" and to call attention to what it sees as a serious deficit of responsible fathers.
To enter the contest and win two tickets to the Super Bowl, a father must create and post a 60-second video to YouTube explaining why his child is the ultimate football fanatic, how he is a championship father and why he deserves to take his child to Super Bowl XLVI. Contestants must post their entries by Jan.15, when the public will vote for their top three favorite videos. On Jan. 21, a panel of judges will select the winner of the Super Bowl tickets.

A non-profit, educational organization based in Kansas City, Mo., The National Center for Fathering works to eradicate "fatherlessness" among children, which it says is a growing U.S. problem that hurts children's well-being.The center provides men with training and resources so they can address their children's needs?.
"We want to see a culture of championship fathering where every child has an involved father or father figure," said National Center for Fathering CEO Carey Casey in a statement. "Instead, we have 19 million children who are living in homes without a father or father figure. There is a serious lack of heroic fathers and role models in our country. A father's absence contributes to an increase in teenage pregnancy rates, physical and mental health problems, alcohol and drug abuse, suicide and poverty among children."
