Canada’s sport rocks for all sorts of reasons but Hayley Wickenheiser wants to know “Why Girls’ Hockey Rocks in Your Community.”
The three-time Olympic gold medalist in women’s hockey is launching a nationwide contest to engage girls and women to make some noise for the game they love and the hometown they play it in. Female hockey players are being invited to create a 60 to 90 second video demonstrating true Canadian spirit and hockey girl power.
You could win:
- A visit to the town from the hockey heroine where Wickenheiser will skate with the minor hockey team (or up to 15 friends and family)
- An autograph and picture session
- A speaking engagement for the entire minor hockey association
- Cool prizes from her personal memorabilia collection for the video’s creator
“I can’t wait to see what crazy and creative ideas the girls come up with to show off their town and pump up the game,” says Wickenheiser. “I learned to play in Shaunavon, Saskatchewan, so I know first-hand, the size of a community doesn’t reflect its enthusiasm and gumption.”
Play by the rules:
- Make a 60 to 90 second video, the more zany the better
- Enlist your friends, family, school, neighbours, mayor, anyone.
- Post it to YouTube and submit the link via hayleywickenheiser.com
- Get people to ‘like’ it by sharing it on Twitter, Facebook and any way you can!
The entry with the most ‘likes,’ wins.
Hayley Wickenheiser and the University of Calgary Dinos recently won, for the first time, the CIS Finals in Edmonton against McGill. Wickenheiser is currently competing with Team Canada in the IIHF World Championships in Vermont.
