Smucker’s, Kristi Yamaguchi Team Up for ‘Unstoppable Family’ Contest


ORRVILLE, Ohio (PRNewswire) — Unstoppable families are always on the go – zipping to and from school, soccer practice, piano lessons, gymnastics, play dates and more. This back-to-school season, the makers of the ultimate on-the-go PB&J want to see unstoppable families in action, and have teamed up with Kristi Yamaguchi, Olympic gold medal figure skater and mom of two, in the Smucker’s Uncrustables Unstoppable Family Photo Contest.

One lucky winner will win the ultimate prize for his/her unstoppable family, an action-packed trip to Yosemite National Park worth $10,000.

Through Oct. 5, consumers can log on to and submit photos of their unstoppable families, along with a caption of 140 characters or less explaining why their family is unstoppable in the Smucker’s Uncrustables Unstoppable Family Photo Contest.

Starting in January 2012, 10 finalist entries will be posted on the site for a nationwide online vote, and the winning photo and caption entry will receive a family trip for the winner and up to three guests to Yosemite. Open to legal residents of the U.S. who are 18 and older. Visit the website for official rules and complete details.

“Like so many parents, it can sometimes be a challenge to keep my family active and organized, especially on the go,” says Yamaguchi. “I am so thrilled to share with other moms and dads my favorite ways to simplify an unbelievably busy schedule with convenient and portable solutions like Uncrustables Sandwiches.”

Moms and dads use Uncrustables Sandwiches to provide their families with a great-tasting lunch or snack wherever they go. Available in five classic flavors and varieties (approximately $3.09 for a four-pack): peanut butter and strawberry jam or grape jelly on whole wheat bread; honey spread on whole wheat bread; and peanut butter and strawberry jam or grape jelly on white bread.

Parents can visit later this summer to view videos of Yamaguchi with her family, and find out how she keeps everyone organized and happy on the go.

Since her professional skating days, Yamaguchi has added wife and mother to her impressive resume, becoming an expert at juggling her career and family. Yamaguchi, who turned 40 on July 12, recently released a New York Times best-selling children’s book, “Dream Big, Little Pig,” as well as a fitness DVD, and remains involved with her Always Dream Foundation (
