Country Financial Sponsor Of 2019 Prep Pick 'Em Contest
There is a new sponsor for the Journal-News Prep Pick 'Em contest this year thanks to three Country Financial agents in Montgomery County.
Greg Holcomb (Hillsboro), Cory Evans (Litchfield) and Nathan Clementz (Nokomis) are sponsoring this year's contest, which gives readers the opportunity to pick the winner of the five South Central Conference football games each week, along with the Nokomis High School game.
"We are thrilled to have Greg, Cory and Nathan come on board for this season," said Journal-News Sports Editor Kyle Herschelman. "They've all shown a dedication to their communities, including the athletic programs, and we couldn't think of a better sponsor for this county-wide contest."
Entry forms for week one of the Prep Pick 'Em contest, sponsored by Country Financial, will be in the Aug. 26 and Aug. 29 editions of The Journal-News.
Picks can be turned in at the Journal-News office by Friday at 5 p.m. or can be emailed to JNsports@consolidated.net prior to kickoff. This year's weekly winner will receive a limited edition Journal-News winter beanie.
