The rules are the same as last year, but the prizes are an upgrade.

We are pleased to announce that, thanks to a generous donation from Brooms Up Curling Supplies, the school club of the winning submission will receive six BalancePlus Composite Brooms, in your choice of color(or colors, any combination.) A design that uses a mix of both carbon fiber and fiberglass to achieve a weight that is between the two other models. Handle weight is approximately 300g. Patented Tapered design that helps to avoid hand slipping, 1" diameter at the top end provides the most comfort for the upper hand while sweeping or skipping 1 1/8" diameter at the head end provides more comfort for the lower hand while brushing.
