OK, this is pretty cool. How would you like to create a design for Lindsey Vonn‘s helmet? The helmet she’ll wear during her surge through the 2010 Vancouver Winter Olympics?? Think of how many millions of people would see your design!

NBCOlympics.com is hosting the “Design Lindsey’s Helmet” contest which begins on November 23rd. Artists as young as 13 can participate and submit designs until December 21st. A team of judges will narrow the submissions down to the top 3, and then fans will vote on the winning one. The voting closes on January 11th. The winner will be announced later that month, and in addition to having Lindsey use your design, you’ll also win 2 tickets to <a href="http://www.theskichannel.com/ski-resort/usa/co/Vail-Ski-Resort” title=”Vail” alt=”Vail” target=”Self”>Vail, and a pair of Head skis and bindings and a Uvex helmet and goggles. How awesome is that!

Here’s what Lindsey had to say: “This is your chance to be with me in Vancouver. Whether you’re an aspiring graphic designer or just someone who likes to doodle all day, it doesn’t matter if you snow plow down the bunny slopes, tree-ski in waist deep powder, or just hang in the lodge, I want to see your designs. Now that the World Cup season has started, I’m getting very excited for the Olympics. I really wanted to do something that allowed my fans to share in my Vancouver experience, and this is what I came up with. I’m looking forward to seeing what people create for my helmet.”
