Entry Deadline: September 8, 2013
Calling all explorers! The National Park Foundation is diving into summer with a Summer Scrapbook contest. Share your best National Park photos, videos, and travel tips for a chance to win a "best of" prize package that includes hiking and camping gear valued at $750. You can also enter the sweepstakes for a chance to win overnight stays for four at the Grand Canyon or Yosemite.
Following the entry deadline of September 8, judges will select ten finalists in each of the following categories: wildlife, landscape, water, sunset/sunrise, fun in the parks, group/family, history and culture in parks, helping the parks, exciting video of any theme, and park tips. Then, from September 10-30, the contest website will be open for public voting in order to pick a winner from each category.
To be eligible, contestants must be legal residents of the United States, at least 18 years old, and can't be employed by the National Park Foundation. The Summer Scrapbook winners will be posted here once the entries have been chosen and confirmed. Check their website for official rules and regulations.
The National Park Foundation raises funds in support of America's 400+ National Parks and programs. As the National Park Service's partner in conservation, the nonprofit plays an important role in preserving the parks, and enhancing their role as treasured learning environments. Get inspired by recent contest entries, and go get your park on!
