Participants must record a video nominating their favorite candidate on Twitter using #CubsRingBearer.

“This Championship Ring Bearer Fan Contest is our way to thank the fans who stood by us for all these years, as well as give them a memory that will last a lifetime,”  Cubs’ President of Business Operations Crane Kenney said in a statement.

All videos MUST be 60 seconds of less and include your full name, hometown and age of the nominees.

Submitters must be 18 or older and nominees must be at least 13 years of age. Participants have until 11:59 p.m. CST on Feb. 14 to make their case.

Judges will review the entries and select 20 winners who will be gifted with two tickets to the April 12 game agains the Dodgers at Wrigley and can stick around for the on-field ceremony.
