HOCKEY HELPS KIDS IS A UNIQUE CONTEST WHICH SUPPORTS CHARITIES IN YOUR AREA
How Does Hockey Helps Kids Work?
Four Edmonton schools are selected and each paired up with a player from the Oilers. Together, each team chooses a charity to enter into the Hockey Helps Kids Charity Cup Challenge. Each team then competes for fan votes to win $25,000 from Hockey Helps Kids.
All four teams – each comprised of the kids, their partnering Oilers player, and selected charity – participate in the contest by driving votes and awareness of their charitable initiative by developing a two-minute video that is posted right here on the Hockey Helps Kids website and promoted at Oilers games.
The team with the most votes for its charity at the end of the fan voting window is named the Charity Cup champion and wins a prize of $25,000 from Hockey Helps Kids for its charity. All three runner-up teams receive a participation award of $10,000 for their charity.
