We love basketball for its flair, artistry and showmanship. But you can’t get to any of the fun stuff without the raw fundamentals, so we’re giving you a chance to learn: right now, you have the chance to win a free ride to the prestigious Five-Star Basketball Camp. Coming up on its 50th year, Five-Star is THE place to learn the skills that elevate your game and let you shine on the courts.

All you have to do is tell us, in 200 words or less, why you deserve to go to Five-Star. Email your applications to by this Friday, June 21. There are only three rules: be 10-18 years old, live in the continental United States, and if you’re under 17, get your parents’ permission before entering. Other than that, it’s up to you. Sure it’s summer and you don’t wanna do any more writing…but to get a free ride to Five-Star, you know it’s worth it.
