Local winners are entered for a shot at the regional prize: a trip to Great Wolf Lodge
Four-year-old Patrick Barkley isn't just a fan of the Kent State Golden Flashes men's basketball team. He's a crucial link in their winning ways. Patrick's mom, Barbara Barkley, won our Littlest Fan Contest with her photo submission of Patrick sweeping the court during a Flashes home game at the MACC. Thanks to Patrick, the court was free of sweat and debris!

Thanks to everyone who submitted photos to our contest!
