The contest is part of an effort to raise $125,000 to build a skate park in the Harewood-area.
"It's going to take us quite a few years but we're going to have a bunch of fundraisers throughout the year like bottle drives. We're going to make a calendar and sell (that) at Christmas time, all sorts of different ideas," said organizer Chris Leigh.
