HOCKEY HELPS KIDS IS A UNIQUE CONTEST WHICH SUPPORTS CHARITIES IN YOUR AREA
How Does Hockey Helps Kids Work?
Five 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 five 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 four runner-up teams receive a participation award of $10,000 for their charity.
The unique contest that supports local schools and charities launches third annual Charity Cup Challenge at Rogers Place.

With the help of 2,400 enthusiastic Junior High students at Rogers Place, Hockey Helps Kids launched the 3rd annual Charity Cup Challenge and voting period (January 31 – February 25).
The five team captains each went to their schools to brainstorm ideas for their videos and fundraising efforts with the students.
