Hey everyone, I wanted to let you know about a cool contest that is currently being run by Scotiabank. The contest is called the big save and it is open to all Canadian residents. The winner will get a trip to Whitehorse, Yukon Territories for their entire hockey team to participate in hockey day in Canada; I think that is pretty cool!
Purpose of the contest – Scotiabank wants to educate children on how to save money (an important lesson for people of all ages). In an effort to help children learn to save they have created a contest that pairs saving money with hockey. All a team has to do to enter the contest is make a pledge. The pledge states how much money they want to save, and what they are saving for. Some ideas could be something simple like a shooting tarp, pucks and pylons for the team to use in practice, or maybe a big goal like a trip for the team to go to the Hockey Hall of Fame!
Who can enter – Any team in Canada with kids between 7-16 can pledge to save as a team for a chance to head to Whitehorse for Hockey Day in Canada.
How to enter – All you have to do to enter the contest is visit the big save entry page. You will need a team photo, and the teams pledge so make sure you talk it over with the coach and team first.
Entry deadline – Your team pledge must be in by November the 30th
How easy is it to win? – According to the contest rules and regulations the winners are chosen by random draw, so no matter how much or how little your team pledges they will still have a chance at winning!
