Contest Details

Canadians have been finding ways to make a difference throughout the pandemic, and we’re here to cheer on those efforts of our communities and encourage others to do the same. It's easy to participate! Share a story of positivity, submit a photo or nominate a community leader.

Each month from June through August, we will randomly draw 3 Stars from all entries. Each star will be awarded a $500 donation on their behalf to a local business, charity, sport association, community/municipality, etc. of their choice.

During September, the 9 finalists will be voted on and the winner will be awarded a grand prize of $10,000 towards their donation.

The campaign is open to all, no hockey or sports connection required. Through your participation in the #HockeyVacciNation campaign, you are making an even bigger impact.

How to participate

Was your league able to safely play this season? Did you or someone you know start a new hobby or try a new activity? Maybe you tried to support local, sewed masks or gowns for those in need, or organized video calls with friends and family to stay connected? Spread some positivity and share a good news story.

Whether it’s a frontline worker who’s been working overtime, a child committed to wearing their mask all day, a parent helping to dress their child for hockey in the parking lot, a league administrator navigating the safety protocols to start the season, a community member who has delivered food to someone in isolation, we want to unite these “hero” stories nationwide.
