Vote for Valdosta as an ESPN Title Town

VALDOSTA - Valdosta State University encourages all members of the VSU and local communities to submit a nomination for Valdosta as an ESPN “TitleTown.”

This summer, ESPN will visit 20 of these “TitleTowns,” each of which will have a rich history in sports and an impressive winning record. “Winnersville” should definitely be a contender.

VSU would like as many nominations from different community members as possible, in order to make a strong impression on the panel. You don't have to write an "essay" - just provide a brief description about why the city deserves this distinction. Video nominations are also being accepted. Visit http://sports.espn.go.com/espn/titletown/ to read more, submit a nomination or view the list of nominees.

ESPN will choose 19 finalists and the last will be determined by online voting during the week of May 26.

More detailed information is available through The Valdosta Daily Times:
