TSN could be coming to your Curling Club?
TSN is once again going across the country on the Kraft Celebration Tour – a national initiative that will see TSN’s flagship sports news program, SPORTSCENTRE, broadcast live from 10 communities over a period of 10 days this summer.
Last year, TSN had several impressive nominations for local curling clubs - and they’d love to have a few more this year…. In addition to the broadcast, Kraft Canada awards $25,000 towards a community refresh – that will be used for improvements to a local recreational facility.
Nominations can be made at http://kraftcelebrationtour.tsn.ca/
As part of the Kraft Celebration Tour – Popular SPORTSCENTRE anchor teams of Darren Dutchyshen and Jennifer Hedger, along with Jay Onrait and Dan O’Toole, will lead the special SportsCentre broadcasts – putting a spotlight on the accomplishments of local athletes.
The nomination period ends on June 13.
Communities can have more than one nomination. Winning nominations will be chosen based on the following criteria:
- Depiction of Community’s passion for sports
- Examples of Community spirit and home-town pride;
- Depiction of an active and healthy lifestyle in your Community;
- Creativity and overall effort in submission
On Canada Day (July 1), TSN will announce the 20 finalists selected by a panel of judges. Then, it’s up to Canada to decide the 10 winning tour stops via 10 days of head-to-head online voting.
