“This is your chance to be with me in Vancouver,” Vonn said.  “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.”

If you’ve ever wanted to be part of the Olympics, there’s hardly a better opportunity. Get excited. Vonn’s excited, too.

“Now that the World Cup season has started, I’m getting very excited for the Olympics,” said Vonn.  “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.”

Visit to enter. The contest will run through Dec. 21, 2009 when a panel of judges will then rank the designs and whittle the pack down to three. will then feature the top three designs during the first week of January, and fans can vote to select the top dawg. The winner will be announced two weeks before the opening ceremonies light up Vancouver.

The grand-prize winner won’t just have the honor of Vonn’s display. The lucky person will also win a trip for two to Vonn’s hometown of Vail, CO. Other prizes include a pair of Head skis and bindings and a Uvex helmet and goggles.
