Choose your head Contest

on Tuesday, 15 April 2014. Posted in Categories, Helmets

The Choose Your Head contest has now wrapped up. Thank you for all the entries and congratulations to the lucky winners!

On the Right Path Nunavik is proud to announce that 103 Nunavimmiut between the ages of 14 and 20 participated in the Choose Your Head contest. Overall, 86 participants answered the contest question correctly: Wearing a helmet can prevent…? And the correct answer was of course 70 to 90% of head injuries. Helmet use greatly reduces the risk of head injuries in the case of off-highway vehicle accidents.

The contest winners have been contacted regarding their prizes and to identify their head sizes. Helmets work best when they fit properly. A choice of colour was also possible (according to available supplies).
Since under the contest 130 helmets were available as prizes and since On the Right Path Nunavik is committed to contributing to the safety of all, it has been decided to award a helmet to all contest participants. This means that 103 helmets in a variety of colours are to be shipped to every community in the region.

Congratulations to all participants! Municipalities, schools and especially school directors and teachers should be acknowledged for their efforts to encourage youth to take part in the contest and for promoting helmet use in their communities. Special thanks are directed to Newviq’vi and Tullik (in Kuujjuaq), Northern Stores, Contant (in Montreal), First-Air and the Kativik Regional Police Force for generously contributing to the contest and making possible the distribution of so many helmets throughout Nunavik.

Be sure to send us photos of you and your new helmet so we can post them on our website and Facebook page. Check out our Facebook page to learn more about some new contests still to be announced and don’t forget to Like Us!
