The Sponsor Me contest is a contest for the up and coming rider looking for an arena to showcase his or her talents.  Those who think they are showing up to your average rail jam are in for a surprise.  The format, judging, and prize are the same; it is the course that has changed.  There are three Divisions to this event:  Sponsor Me (winner gets a rep rider sponsorship from the headlining sponsors), Women’s (prize packages), Groms (14 and under).  The sponsor me division will have a finals for the top 10 riders to find the overall winner.  Awards will immediately follow the event in the Playground area at Mountain High.

The terrain features will be constructed by the elite Mountain High terrain park staff.  There will be 5 features that are set up to help promote creativity in the rider.

Judging will be headed up by the key industry people who have their eyes on the industry searching for some new talent.  Brent Futagaki will be the head judge, and has amassed a panel of experts.  There will be a minimum of one judge per feature.  Judges will focus on skill, creativity, difficulty, and overall impression.  Competitors will session each obstacle for 15 minutes then rotate to the next obstacle.  There will be rest areas between each feature to allow competitors to watch the competition, drink some water and rest up.
