         The contest closes on July 12, 2013.  Three finalists will win a trip to a Grand Prize event and have the opportunity to present their ideas to NFL VIPs. The Grand Prize winner will win $5,000 and the two runner-ups will receive $500. The NFL will also work with the Grand Prize Winner to bring their idea to life.
