Three cool contests that hikers and other outdoors people are sure to like:
The Leave No Trace Trailhead Sign Contest wants your photos of trailhead signs that mention the Leave No Trace program. Post them on the Leave No Trace Facebook page. (And “Like” the page while you’re there.) The winner gets a pair of Keen shoes. The drawing is this Monday, August 16, at noon, Mountain time, so enter now.
The National Park Foundation is running a Passport to the Parks Sweepstakes with Sunset magazine and Merrell shoes. Enter your name to win a National Parks and Federal Recreation Land Annual Pass, a $200 Merrell gift certificate, a subscription to Sunset magazine and more. Enter through September 10, 2010.
Olympus cameras and the National Park Foundation are having a photo contest called Share the Experience. The Grand Prize winning photo will be featured on the 2012 Federal Recreation Lands Pass, and the photographer will get an Olympus camera plus a five-day trip to the Federal Recreation Area of his or her choice. Second prize is not bad either: an Olympus camera plus a three-day trip. There are several more prizes as well. Submit your photos by December 31, 2010. Check out the submitted photos and vote for your favorites, January 16-31, 2011. Those who vote for their favorite photos are also eligible to win a camera.
