Play a Part in Super Bowl LII
Minnesota will host the Super Bowl on Saturday, February 4, 2018, and you’re invited to help give visitors a warm welcome. The Super Bowl Host Committee wants to present players, team owners, and other guests with gifts that celebrates Minnesota’s Native American culture: hand-made beaded lanyards.
The Host Committee will ship you all the materials you need, and you’ll have the chance to win prizes and sell your merchandise at Super Bowl events!
Here’s how the Warm Welcome Lanyard Project works:
- You sign up to create a set of 5 lanyards (or more!) by contacting Collin Price at Collin@bteamstrategy.com or (608) 772-8848.
- Within a week, you’ll receive a lanyard kit with enough beads to make 5 lanyards in a special Aurora Borealis theme color palette. Peyote stitch, wrapped or loom style lanyards are all welcome, and you can use your own beads if you prefer.
- By participating in the Warm Welcome Lanyard Project, you could be selected to showcase your merchandise during 10 days of festivities leading up to the Super Bowl, when one and a half million people will be looking for unique memorabilia to purchase!
