I just got an e-mail from Mimi Knoop with great news! A skate video contest for girls launched through The Alliance!
“Our goal is to help encourage girls around the world to push their skating skills- and to give them something exciting to be a part of. The top three winners will receive “behind the scenes” passes to X Games – along with product prize packages directly from the Pros themselves. The over all winner gets to skate the X Games street course with the Pro women competitors leading up to the contest!”
Here is more info but for all the details visit: http://www.actionsportsalliance.com/video-contest
The Alliance is looking for the best up and coming female street skateboarders! We know girls are out there skating and progressing in their hometowns, so we want to see your best footage! The top 3 entries will win special “behind the scenes” passes to the 2012 X Games Women’s Street contest (held during June 28th – July 1, 2012). The lucky lady with the top judged video gets to skate with the pros in the official women’s street practice the week leading up to X Games! X Games is synonymous with GOING BIG! With the largest prize purse in women’s skating history, this is the premiere skate contest for the ladies of street. The winners will be carefully chosen by our official X Games street selection committee. Good luck!
