2011 MasterCard Memorial Cup Design-A-Mask contest winners Colby Howe and Jake Jurgeneit were in attendance Wednesday night at Hershey Centre when the host Mississauga St. Michael’s Majors took on the Owen Sound Attack.
Howe was selected as the winner of the 10 and under age group by goalie Mickael Audette and Jake Jurgeneit was the winner from the 11 and older age category by goalie JP Anderson.
The winning designs were worn by Mickael and JP during the Majors’ warm-up on Wednesday night.
In partnership with the Mississauga St. Michael’s Majors, the 2011 Host Organizing Committee for the MasterCard Memorial Cup invited children across the region to make an original design to be worn by the Majors’ goaltenders during the 2011 MasterCard Memorial Cup.
The contest was an overwhelming success with hundreds of entries that are now on display in the MasterCard Memorial Cup Fan Fest.
On top of the thrill of having the mask worn by the goalies, the two winners will also receive their very own duplicate, custom mask painted by David Arrigo.
