Columbus, Ohio - Do you have what it takes to be a slider? White Castle is proud to team up with USA Luge for the nationwide Be A Slider contest, searching for one bold soul 
to win a chance for a trip for two to the 2018 USA Luge Fantasy Camp where they'll experience what it takes to be an Olympic luge athlete.

“Athletes who luge are called sliders, not to be confused with delicious White Castle Sliders,” said Jamie Richardson, vice president of White Castle. “As a family owned business, White Castle embraces bold moves, and who could better represent the essence of bold than someone speeding down an icy track on a luge sled. The winner of this contest will have the slider experience of a lifetime!”

An Olympic sport since 1964, luge consists of athletes sliding down a track of ice on sleds, feet first, at speeds of up to 90 miles per hour. In addition to five Olympic medals, USA Luge athletes, referred to as ‘sliders,’ have won almost 600 elite level and junior international medals since 1994, making the organization one of the most decorated Winter Olympics National Governing Body.

The nation’s two foremost slider experts, White Castle and USA Luge, announced a two-year partnership in April 2017, making White Castle the first and only fast food organization in the United States to become an official partner of USA Luge and title sponsor of the off-season recruitment program, the White Castle USA Luge Slider Search.

The grand prize winner will receive airfare, food, and other accommodations for them and a thrill-seeking guest to the 3-day USA Luge Fantasy Camp at the United States Olympic Training Center in Lake Placid, N.Y. from April 6 – 8, 2018. They’ll also receive their own GoProÒ to capture incredible footage from this chance-of-a-lifetime advance and other White Castle swag.

“It’ll take two bold and brave souls who are ready for the time of their lives,” Richardson said. “Enter online today – your luge fantasy is just one question and photo away!”

The contest runs through January 31, 2018 and entries may be made online at www.BeASlider.com. Interactive contest submissions may be shared on social media using the hashtag #BeASliderContest. A panel of qualified judges at White Castle will select the grand prize and runner-up winners.
