Visitors to the site will have the chance to get a new, fresh perspective on a variety of charitable community efforts that they can adapt and implement in their hometowns."

Jackson residents can vote for their favorite moves on the Web site and one semi-finalist in each market will go on to compete against top-ranked players across the U.S. for the top $10,000 prize. Participants must be 18 or older to compete.

Headlined by reality TV star Syrus Yarborough, The NEXT BEST MOVE(SM) Crew will also be searching for great moves off the court. Visitors to http://www.thenextbestmove.com/ can share how they are "changing the game" through community service and encouraging others to do the same.

City residents should be on the lookout as The Crew will also visit lifestyle destinations, such as local attractions, clothing stores and community centers to identify local trends and discover what's "hot" in the Jackson area. Results will be featured on a special culture section on http://www.thenextbestmove.com/.
