Battlehead Gear Ships It Forward
It was a Battlehead that ultimately deemed Lauren Fonseca-Fiddler grand-prize winner of Battleship Missouri Memorial’s “Ship it Forward” Facebook contest.
Open to the entire nation, a “Battlehead ambassador” in each state received a complimentary Battlehead — much like a Cheesehead, only more appropriately in the shape of the Mighty Mo. To enter, contestants were asked to take a photo at a historic location in their hometown wearing the Battlehead, before posting it to the Missouri’s Facebook page with #shipitforward and a hashtag of their own state.
Then, ambassadors were asked to “ship it forward” by sharing their Battlehead with friends and family to encourage others to enter the contest. All contestants from the state with the largest number of entries became eligible to win the grand prize in a random drawing.
“Pearl Harbor and the USS Missouri will always hold a special place in the hearts of people throughout the nation,” said Jaclyn Hawse, director of communications and business development with Battleship Missouri Memorial.
