Wyoming Community Named “Hockeyville USA” Finalist
Douglas, Wyoming's Ice Arena has been selected as one of ten finalists in Kraft's "Hockeyville USA" contest and is eligible to win some big prizes.
Every year, Kraft selects ten ice rinks around the country for the contest. The ten are picked based on community support for the game of hockey, particularly at the youth level.
After the top ten are selected, hockey fans get to vote for the place they'd like to declare "Hockeyville USA" for the year. The winning arena gets a $150,000 upgrade and an opportunity to host an NHL preseason game. Douglas gets a minimum of a $10,000 prize just for being selected.
Douglas goes against arenas in Minnesota, New York, Connecticut, Illinois, Pennsylvania, Massachusetts, and North Dakota.
Voting begins on Tuesday, April 11.
