Helmets and Halos contest winner announced
(Saint John) April 8, 2015 - The NB Trauma Program is pleased to announce the winner of this year's "Helmets and Halos" contest. Participation across the province was outstanding, but ultimately only one arena could claim the prize, the River Valley Civic Centre in Perth-Andover. Congratulations to all participants, especially the winners in Perth-Andover.
The contest encouraged arenas to raise awareness about the risk of concussion and provides the winning arena with head-protection gear, which will help prevent injury. Every arena that participated helped raise awareness about concussion prevention.
Now in its fifth year, the NB Trauma Program provides excellence in trauma care, injury prevention, education and research. For resources and more information on concussions, please visit the NB Trauma program's website at www.NBTrauma.ca.
