CALGARY—Canada’s skeleton athletes captured the world’s attention during the 2014 Olympic year with creative artistic designs on their race helmets. From bucking broncos to the image of a human brain to skulls and bones and a Demon Head, Canada’s helmets are a form of self-expression, and in many cases, showcase the athlete’s personalities.
 
Bobsleigh Canada Skeleton is now asking students from coast-to-coast-to-coast to celebrate RBC Sports Day in Canada by creating a component of a Canadian Skeleton Team helmet for a chance to win a skeleton helmet painted with the winning design, and signed by an Olympic medal-winning skeleton athlete.

·       Contest deadline is midnight MST on November 28, 2014
