Organic Valley® Winter Sweepstakes FAQs

How is Organic Valley associated with Team USA and the Olympic Winter Games 2018?
  • The Milk Marketing Board, MilkPEP, has secured the official white milk sponsorship of the U.S. Olympic and Paralympic Teams, as nine out of 10 Team USA hopefuls, athletes, and legends grew up drinking milk1. The nutrient powerhouse is also a staple at U.S. Olympic Training Centers today, where tens of thousands of gallons of milk are served to U.S. Olympians and Paralympians as part of their training regimens2
  • As an active member of MilkPEP, Organic Valley can participate in the Team USA sponsorship as a white milk brand.
  • Organic Valley is the largest organic white milk member of MilkPEP and sponsor of Team USA.
  • To promote and support our sponsorship of Team USA and bring value to our consumers, we've created an exciting winter sweepstakes giving away a trip to Tahoe, CA and a chance to meet U.S. Olympic Gold Medalist, Jamie Anderson.
  • Jamie Anderson is MilkPEP's Organic Milk Team USA athlete ambassador, so you will see her on Organic Valley Team USA themed retail promotions at your local grocery store and via social content that we will be sharing across our channels!

1KRC Research conducted an online survey among retired, current, and hopeful U.S. Olympic and Paralympic athletes on behalf of MilkPEP between February 23 and March 7, 2016. The U.S. Olympic Committee and its National Governing Bodies distributed e-mail invitations with a link to the survey to its retired, current, and hopeful athletes inviting them to participate. In total, across Olympic and Paralympic sports, 1,113 completed the ten-minute survey (675 Olympians, 93 Paralympians and 345 hopefuls in training).
*9 out of 10 finding based on 675 responses received from survey invitations sent to all U.S. Olympic athletes.

Who is Team Milk?

MilkPEP's Team Milk is comprised of more than 30 Team USA athletes across the country who have always trusted milk as part of their training and are now paired with and backed by local milk brands and dairy organizations, including Organic Valley3.

Organic Valley is working with one national and three regional Team Milk athletes and U.S. Olympic hopefuls who represent organic white milk including:

  • Jamie Anderson: Jamie took home the first-ever Olympic Gold Medal for Team USA in Women's Slopestyle Snowboarding at the Olympic Winter Games Sochi 2014 and is recognized as the most decorated slopestyle snowboarder in X Games history3
  • Aja Evans: 2014 U.S. Olympic Bronze Medalist, Bobsled (Chicago)3
  • Erin Hamlin: Three-time U.S. Olympian and U.S. Olympic Bronze Medalist, Luge (Remsen)3
  • Jackie Wiles: 2014 U.S. Olympian, Alpine Skiing (Portland)3

Given the current global environment, specifically in North Korea, what will MilkPEP/Organic Valley do if the U.S. government decides it is unsafe for Team USA Olympic Athletes to travel to the 2018 games in Pyeongchang, South Korea?

The U.S. Olympic Committee (USOC) continues to monitor the situation closely and is working with all appropriate parties to ensure that the athletes and entire U.S. delegation are safe. Currently, two full delegations are being sent to Pyeongchang to represent the U.S. during The Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games.

Regardless of what happens, MilkPEP and Organic Valley will continue to support Team USA and all of our Team Milk athletes, and Organic Valley will still honor the Winter Sweepstakes promotion and prizing.
