Bat­tle­head Gear Ships It For­ward

MidWeek Islander (West Oahu) - - Front Page - By JAIMIE KIM

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.
