How would like like to own your very own, official Mario & Sonic snowboard? Well, you have the opportunity to do just that thanks to a contest currently being run by Sega of Europe and O.C. Remix. The contest is only open through January 18, 2010... so the (over) clock is ticking. All that you have to do is use your imagination and come up with your own original snowboard trick in relation to Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Winter Games
. It won't be as easy as naming a generic airborne trick, you need to be creative and put your imagination to work. Despite the fact that Sega of Europe is one of the co-creators of the contest, it is open up to gamers worldwide. You can find the official page for the contest over at O.C. Remix's website

Mario & Sonic Snowboard Contest from OC ReMix & SEGA Europe! (Jan. 18th deadline!)
OC ReMix is teaming up with SEGA Europe to celebrate Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Winter Games by giving away an official Mario & Sonic snowboard.
It's a pretty unique item, and we know a lot of folks would want one (even if they can't snowboard), so we'd appreciate your help spreading the word. The difference with this contest vs. past giveaways of the snowboard is that SEGA Europe has allowed OC ReMix to open it up worldwide, not just to the UK. Everyone around the world is eligible, so this is their chance to win it!
How to Enter:
Email firstname.lastname@example.org with the following info:
* Their name
* Their YouTube account name, AND
* The name & description of a cool made-up snowboarding trick!
They also must be subscribed to the OC ReMix YouTube channel (http://tr.im/yOCR). YouTube is how we'll contact the winner. (Video get!)
The snowboarding trick ideas can be Mario & Sonic-based, Olympic Games-based, OC ReMix-based, it can be anything, and entrants can submit as many tricks as they want in one email. The coolest snowboarding trick sent in will win!
Trick Examples! (They don't need to be this literal. Entrants just need to be creative & cool, and have fun with it!)
"IceCap Dash" - Sonic does a 360 rotation while spin dashing on the board!
"Space Harrier" - Hang in the air for more than 5 seconds, with a rocket pack attached to your back!
"pixietricks" - Sonic gets some air and jumps off the board, while Amy Rose jumps and lands on the board in mid-air! <3
There's also YouTube players on the contest page to check out Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Winter Games and listen to all of OCR's SEGA music tributes. (Little bit of trivia: The music of SEGA was a huge inspiration for the founding of OC ReMix by David "djpretzel" Lloyd back in 1999.)
