Are you D.C.'s greatest sports fan? Prove it.

We're launching a contest to find the D.C. area sports fan who has the best combination of spirit, local-sports knowledge and loyalty to their team(s). Our panel of judges -- Early Lead blogger Cindy Boren, Sports columnist Tracee Hamilton and D.C. Sports Bog blogger Dan Steinberg -- will choose 10 finalists to compete in two rounds of face-offs, with winners decided each round by a combination of readers' and judges' opinions. The final three contestants will compete head-to-head(-to-head) at a live trivia night.

Prizes: The winner will receive a $1,000 gift card to purchase tickets to local sporting events and the runners-up will each receive $250 gift cards.

If you think you have what it takes to be D.C.'s greatest sports fan, fill out the application below and read the complete contest rules. We realize that some of the trivia questions on the application are pretty tough, but don't be scared. Getting one wrong won't eliminate you from contention, but getting them all right will definitely help you stand out from the crowd. Have fun and good luck! Hopefully we'll see you at trivia night.

The entry period for this round of the contest is closed. Thank you. Want a preview of the contestants? View submissions below.
