The Cleveland Gladiators Youth Football & Cheer Programs of the Month reward character, discipline, skills, sportsmanship, and an active community role. Between September and October, five programs will be chosen as the Gladiators' Programs of the Month, with each winning program receiving, among other perks, a $500 grant from the Gladiators Community Fund. Submissions are currently closed, but check back in August to nominate a stellar local program!
