It’s time for the Northern Brain Injury Association’s 3rd annual Happy Helmet Day Contest being held from June 1 -14.

To enter the contest, simply decorate your helmet however you like and e-mail a picture of you wearing it in public either at school or at work.

Be sure to include your name, age, contact information and community. Children must include their parent’s permission to participate and adults need to include their place of work.

This contest marks June as being National Brain Awareness Month in Canada.

The contest is made possible through the Northern Brain Injury Association dedication in raising awareness about brain injury.

Their mission is to advance brain injury prevention, education and support in order to reduce injury, and improve the quality of life for all those who are affected by its life altering effects.

Northern British Columbians live, play and work in some of the most rugged and dangerous geography in the entire world. Days are filled with activities and behaviors that produce endless risks for sustaining injury to our body’s most complex organ, our brain.

The result is more than 22,000 British Columbians experiencing brain injuries every year.

So get ready to win some excellent prizes including new helmets where winners can choose their own colours and patterns.

Winners will be selected on June 15.
