OMHA Launches Essay Contest
Submitted By Webmaster on Fri 12 09, 16
TELL US WHAT YOUR COACH TEACHES YOU FOR A CHANCE TO WIN A $1000 PRO HOCKEY LIFE GIFT CARD


 

 The Ontario Minor Hockey Association is proud to announce the third annual Ontario Minor Hockey Association Essay Contest presented by Respect in Sport. The contest is designed for players to be engaged in an educational manner while encouraging them to express their thoughts on what life skills they learn from playing hockey.

All registered OMHA participants are encouraged to enter the contest by writing a story no longer than 250 words that begins with the phrase "My hockey coach teaches me…" The top five essays will be selected by a committee based on the creativity demonstrated in their submission. All finalists will be awarded an OMHA prize pack while the grand prize winner will receive a $1,000 shopping spree at Pro Hockey Life. The essays will also be included in an upcoming edition of Hometown Hockey Magazine.

"Respect in Sport is about providing a positive environment for all, so that hockey players can enjoy the game, and learn from the positive adult role models around them, like parents, coaches, and officials," said Ontario Director – Respect Group, Mark Allen. "Respect Group is very proud to support the OMHA essay contest this year."

"This is an exciting initiative for the OMHA and we are proud to work closely once again with Respect in Sport," said OMHA Executive Director Richard Ropchan. "We feel it is important to hear how hockey has made a difference for our players, and to reinforce to others how they can make a difference through hockey. This is a great opportunity to spread positive messages learned through our great sport from their coaches, parents and teammates."

Submissions will be accepted until February 27, 2017. Original essays should be limited to 250 words or less, and should include the child’s name, hockey association, team/classification, address, phone number and email address.

Essays can be submitted to:
