Imperial Oil will continue to recognize young Canadian hockey players for outstanding sportsmanship and skill with the Esso Medals and Certificates of Achievement program and the Esso Medals Score Big contest in 2013-2014.
For more than 30 years, Esso Medals and Certificates of Achievement has supported and encouraged minor Canadian hockey players aged six to 18 by offering a set of awards to teams across Canada. The free program is set up to help coaches across the country recognize strong values that contribute to the growth and development of Canada’s young athletes—on and off the ice.
Open to all Canadian minor teams that are registered with Hockey Canada, teams that join the program will receive a set of three Esso Medals of Achievement – most dedicated, most improved and most sportsmanlike player – and can also receive 18 certificates that recognize the efforts of every player on the team.
All teams that enter the program before March 15, 2014 will be eligible to win the Esso Medals Score Big contest, in which teams are automatically entered into a draw that consists of a $10,000 league grant to be given to their local minor hockey association plus a $1,000 team prize, for three lucky teams.
