Planning for the Central Interior B.C. Aboriginal Youth Hockey Tournament is underway

Contest underway for youth tourney

The Central B.C. Aboriginal Youth Hockey and Sports Association is putting out a call for logo submissions.

The Central B.C. Aboriginal Youth Hockey and Sports Association is putting out a call for logo submissions for its sixth annual hockey tournament.

Every year hundreds of Aboriginal youth from B.C. and Alberta gather in Williams Lake for the Central B.C. Aboriginal Youth Hockey Tournament (CBCAYHT). Annual tournament sweatshirts feature a logo prominently displayed created by one of the tournament’s participants.

Sheila Kelalst-Booth, president of the CBCAYHT, said there are some criteria that must be incorporated into logo designs.

“The logo must include the following: Sixth Annual Central BC Aboriginal Youth Hockey Tournament written exactly; an eagle, raven and bear (represents Carrier, Chilcotin and Shuswap); either colour or black and white; use no copyright media; and entrants must be between ages of five and 21,” she said.

The first-place winner will receive a jacket with the creator’s logo design and $150 cash. Second-place runner-up gets a hoodie and third place gets a ball cap.

Deadline for submissions is Dec. 19 at 6 p.m.

Contact information including first name, last name, school, age and phone number must be included on the back of the page.

Logos can be delivered to Kelalst-Booth at 1019 Schmidt Rd. in Williams Lake.

For more information contact Kelalst-Booth by phone at 250-267-1007 or by e-mail at

The Central B.C. Aboriginal Youth Hockey Tournament  is also looking for members interested in helping organize or volunteer at this year’s tournament, scheduled annually in March.

Tournament meetings go Mondays at 7:30 p.m. at the Cariboo Memorial Recreation Complex. Kelalst-Booth said there are a number of volunteer positions available.
