GREENVILLE, S.C. (March 4, 2005) — Michelin North America Inc. for the second year will hold the “Uniroyal Tire Julie Foudy Clinic Sweepstakes” to give a winner and his or her youth soccer program a three-hour clinic by the Olympic medalist.
Ms. Foudy, who has worked with the Uniroyal brand for five years, led the team that won the gold medal at last year's summer Olympics. She won two other Olympic medals and is a two-time World Cup Champion.
“This sweepstakes promotion is a great way for Uniroyal Tire to reach out to youth soccer and its players,” said Thom Peebles, brand marketing director. “Julie is a fantastic role model for kids and their parents alike.”
This year, the promotional period for entry into the contest has been extended to eight months from four to encourage more people to enter, Michelin said. Parents can enter the contest once a month, allowing them to be eligible for 12 monthly first prize drawings to win a soccer ball autographed by Ms. Foudy. The final, grand prize drawing will be held in November, culled from all entries throughout the promotional period.
Parents can enter from March 1 through Oct. 31 at www.uniroyal.com/sweeps.
