Hockey stars to shine for ANCO contest

Posted on April 1, 2014

Federal-Mogul Corp.’s ANCO Wipers brand is showing its support of youth hockey leagues across North America through an online video contest that will award $10,000 in youth hockey sponsorships to teams that best demonstrate their commitment to the game. ANCO is The Official Wiper Blade of the National Hockey League.

The ANCO “Future Hockey Stars” contest enables youth hockey teams to compete for sponsorships by visiting www.ANCOWipers.com and posting two-minute video entries.

Federal-Mogul will award a $1,000 ANCO Future Hockey Stars sponsorship to each of five finalist teams and an additional $5,000 grand-prize team sponsorship to one of the finalists based in part on votes cast by consumers who visit the ANCO website.

Video entries will be accepted at www.ANCOWipers.com from June 10 through July 15, 2014, and voting will begin July 29, 2014. Finalists will be announced Aug. 20, 2014, and the $5,000 grand-prize sponsorship will be awarded Sept. 24, 2014.

“Youth leagues are a great way for kids to show their passion for hockey and develop their athletic abilities in an environment that promotes sportsmanship and healthy living,” says ANCO Wipers Brand Manager Tracy Neil. “We know that the costs of supporting a team continue to rise and have developed this contest to help parents and team members stay engaged in this exciting and rewarding sport.”

The ANCO Future Hockey Stars contest is open to legal residents of the United States, District of Columbia, and Canada (excluding Quebec). All team members must be under the age of 20 and only one entry will be accepted per team.

For all rules and restrictions, visit www.ANCOWipers.com. The contest is not affiliated with the NHL.

The Sales Counter Moved Again: And the Sales Floor is Now on the Smartphone

The sales counter just moved. Well, it didn’t “just-move,” it’s been moving. In my early days of selling tires at retail, it all happened in a small area at the store known as the sales floor. Consumers called or visited the store where the initial details of a potential sale were discussed. Today, the initial discussion is digital. The salesperson at the store had a great deal of control because the product and pricing information resided with the salesperson at the store. Today, there’s plenty of product and pricing information available to the consumer before they call or visit.
