On February 20, 2012, the Ryan Sheckler Foundation announced a special contest geared towards skate fans. Those that enter the contest will have a chance to win a trip to the Summer X Games 18 and a meeting with pro skater Ryan Sheckler. Currently the Summer X Games 18 is slated to take place in Los Angeles, California, during the month of June 2012. Here are a few more details:
Skate fans interested in entering the contest should log onto the Sheckler Foundation website and make a $10 donation to the organization between now and May 25, 2012. The donation will serve as the contest entry. Don’t have $10 to spare? Don’t worry, you can still enter. All you have to do is mail a 3 x 5 index card with your contact information on it to the address provided on the foundation’s website. After May 25, 2012, a drawing will be held from the submitted entries. The winner of the drawing will receive airfare, accommodations and X Games passes for two as well as a meeting with Ryan Sheckler. Furthermore, some of the contest’s early entrants will also receive additional goodies such as a limited edition Tech Deck, an autographed Red Bull hat, posters, temporary tattoos and a Plan B limited edition skateboard. The extra goodies are based on donation amount as well as availability.
