Time is running out to enter the Fatherhood Challenge – a contest promoted by GRAMMY Award-winning Christian Rapper Lecrae and two-time NBA Champion Dwayne Wade to start a nation-wide conversation about what it means to be father.

The pair – both devoted fathers, husbands and Christians—began promoting the contest earlier this month. The Fatherhood Challenge urges men to submit original songs, videos, essays and photos that share their definition of being dad before 12 p.m., June 1. Challenge winners will be awarded cash prizes and a trip to Washington, D.C.

The challenge is sponsored by the This is Fatherhood campaign. The campaign has also drafted award-winning filmmaker Art Hooker, Lecrae and Joshua Dubois the former Director of President Barack Obama's Faith-based Initiative to judge the entries from June 1 to June 3. The general public can also vote online for their favorite entries until June 1.

The contest winner will be announced June 3.
