They were selected as honorary members of the teams competing in the Canada Cup after submitting a 100-word story outlining why they want to be one of the stars. Each will receive:
• A commemorative Junior Stars jacket
• Tickets to the draw when their team is highlighted as well as draw tickets for all immediate family members courtesy of Columbia Basin Trust
• A 2011 Capital One Canada Cup Event Pin and Souvenir Program
