The Good Deeds Cup is back for a fourth season.
Chevrolet Canada and Hockey Canada are ready to give a stick tap to Peewee teams across the country, launching its search for the team that makes the biggest impact in its community.
Last year, 301 video submissions were received before the West Carleton Warriors were voted national winners, earning a prize that included $100,000 for West Carleton Disaster Relief.
After tornadoes ripped through their communities on Sept. 21, 2018, members of the Warriors stepped up immediately to raise more than $4,000 for relief efforts at the Carp Fair.
They got involved again in December when the community planned a Christmas party as a thank you for those who had lent a hand following the disaster. The team helped with set-up and tear-down, and volunteered as Santa’s elves to hand out gifts.
For the 2019-20 season, teams will have until Jan. 13, 2020 to upload a 60-second video of their good deeds to YouTube and fill out the submission form at Chevrolet.ca to be entered.
Good deeds could include visiting an animal shelter, raising money for charity collecting bottles and cans, volunteering at a food bank, shoveling neighbourhood driveways or visiting sick kids at a hospital, just to name a few.
What’s up for grabs this season? The team that wins the Good Deeds Cup will receive:
- $100,000 to the charity of the team’s choice
- a profile of the team on national television
- a ceremony in the team’s hometown
- Chevrolet and Hockey Canada branded swag
- the team name engraved on the Good Deeds Cup
On Jan. 25, 11 regional finalists will be selected from all entries. A judging panel appointed by Chevrolet and including Good Deeds Cup Ambassadors will choose the top 11. The top three finalists will be determined based on the most views on YouTube between Jan. 25 and Feb. 9.
Teams that reach the semifinals will not go unrewarded; the eight regional finalists who don’t make the final will each take home $2,000 for charity and Hockey Canada/Chevrolet branded swag, while the two finalists not named champion will receive $5,000 for charity and Hockey Canada/Chevrolet branded swag.
