On March 12th, the winners of this year’s Dodge Caravan Kids photo contest were announced by Dodge Brand. This annual contest asks participating novice-level hockey teams across Canada to submit fun photos that incorporate the team along with either a Dodge Grand Caravan, their local Dodge dealership, or a “thank you” to Dodge. There were over 2,100 teams participating this year alone and the top five ranking teams will now be awarded $4,500 in cash prizes. Cash prized won by the teams is used to offset the cost of team expenses such as purchasing ice time, replacement equipment, or tournament registration costs. This year’s winning teams are:
- In first place Carman Novice 1A
- In second place Lakeside Novice Minor
- In third place Nepean NCB
- In fourth place Wawa MHA
- In fifth place Grand Forks MHA Team Bruins
According to Ed Broadbear, Vice President Marketing, FCA Canada, “We truly appreciate the energy and creative spirit our Dodge Caravan Kids teams put forward each year for the photo contest. For more than 30 years, our Dodge Grand Caravan minivans have played a key role in getting millions of hockey families to and from arenas throughout Canada. We are thrilled that our Dodge Caravan Kids sponsorship program helps kids further enjoy the sport, by making it a little more affordable to play.”
The Dodge Caravan Kids program was founded in 2006 and is a collaboration between FCA Canada, participating minor hockey associations throughout Canada, and Chrysler, Jeep, Dodge, Ram, Fiat retailers. This program has since donated more than $6.5 million that has helped over 14,000 teams and more than 200,000 kids play the game of hockey.
