USA TODAY High School Sports is looking to determine the best football program in America with the next installment of our “Best Of” contest.

The top football programs don’t just win games. They have great fan support and facilities, excellent traditions, expert coaches, and develop players on and off the field.

The contest gets underway today with 255 programs selected by a panel of experts, and your Natrona County Mustangs are in that group!

A champion will be crowned Dec. 10 after three rounds of voting – by state, by region and then the finalists.

Rally your school, rally your community and start voting.

Here is more information:

State: Nov. 10 – Nov. 19
Regional: Nov. 20 – Dec. 1
National: Dec. 2 – Dec. 10

First Place: The Athletic Dept. will receive $1,000 and a banner
Second Place: The Athletic Dept. will receive $500 and a banner
Third Place: The Athletic Dept. will receive $250 and a banner
**All 10 finalist schools will receive a banner for being a finalist.

This “Best Football Program” contest is the 12th installment in the America’s “Best Of” contest series, which has drawn more than 150 million votes and attracted fans from all sections of the country. More than 2,000 schools have been involved in at least one of the contests, with past champions hailing from Missouri, Vermont, Illinois (three times), Kentucky, North Carolina, Oklahoma and Kansas.
