U.S. WOMEN'S OPEN
Creativity to Be on Full Display in Junior Ticket Design Contest
January 15, 2019 | Liberty Corner, N.J.
The USGA and MUSC Children’s Health have launched a contest for local Charleston youth to design the junior tickets for the 74th U.S. Women’s Open Championship, which will be contested at the Country Club of Charleston (S.C.) from May 27-June 2, 2019.
Three winners will be chosen and their designs will be prominently featured on tickets for all juniors who attend the U.S. Women’s Open, as well as on-site at the Country Club of Charleston during the championship. The entry deadline has been extended to 11:59 p.m. EST on March 4. Winners will be announced shortly thereafter.
“We’re looking forward to engaging local kids as we continue to celebrate and embrace the community’s support of the U.S. Women’s Open,” said Matt Sawicki, championship director. “The Charleston community and MUSC have shown tremendous support for the championship and this contest will further that engagement in a fun, interactive way.”
Juniors are encouraged to show their creativity and originality in their ticket design entry.
Through its support of junior programming, MUSC will be an integral part of activities for juniors and their families leading up to and during the championship. All youths ages 18 and under will receive complimentary admission to the championship with a ticket-holding adult. Specific on-site activities for juniors will be announced closer to the championship.
“At MUSC Children’s Health, we are constantly looking for ways to engage kids in the Charleston area in healthy, active lifestyles, and encouraging them to attend one of the biggest sporting events in the world like the U.S. Women’s Open is a great opportunity to do so,” said MUSC’s Children’s & Women’s ICCE Chief Mark Scheurer, M.D. “This ticket design contest is a perfect opportunity for kids to feel involved with the championship beginning today and helps build excitement to what we know will be a great event in May.”
The contest is open to legal residents of all 50 states and the District of Columbia who are 18 and younger. Minors must have a parent/legal guardian’s permission in the form of a signed entry form to participate. Eligible entrants under 13 must have a parent/legal guardian submit the entry form on their behalf. No purchase or payment is necessary to enter or win.
