The seventh annual OMHA Essay Contest presented by Respect in Sport is designed for players to be engaged in an educational manner while encouraging them to express their thoughts on what life skills they learn from playing hockey.




The top five essays will be selected by a committee based on the creativity demonstrated in their submission.

All finalists will be awarded an OMHA prize pack while the grand prize winner will receive a $1,000 worth of CCM Gear.

“Respect in Sport is about providing a positive environment for all, so that hockey players can enjoy the game, and learn from the positive adult role models around them, like parents, coaches, and officials,” said Co-Founder – Respect Group, Wayne McNeil. “Respect Group is very proud to support the OMHA Essay Contest this year.”

“We are proud to once again work closely with Respect Group on the OMHA Essay Contest. It’s important to us to hear how our players have developed a passion for hockey that they can carry with them for life” said OMHA Executive Director, Ian Taylor. “We know the importance of hockey to our players and are excited to hear it from their own words.”
