Texans have until October to nominate their special youth coaches for a chance to win some serious cash for their teams.

MyPlates.com is holding their Coach of the Year contest across the state.  The grand prize winning coach will get the license plate "Coach 13" and $25,000 for their team.  

Kim Miller Drummond with MyPlates.com says it is a public process, "The nominations can be from kids, parents, and the coaches themselves."

From now until October 11, you can visit MyPlates.com and nominate the youth coach in your area that you think makes the biggest difference for your kids and community.  

Following the nomination period seven regional winners will be selected, then the public will vote on the grand prize winner.
