This Week's Competition

Week 6 of the Campus Challenge runs from October 9th - 15th.

The North Face

This week for the Outdoor Nation Campus Challenge, The North Face is hosting a scavenger hunt on your campus. Your Outdoor Nation Campus Challenge school coordinator will hide scavenger hunt clues in a local park near your campus, and it is up to you to find it. Trust us, you don’t want to sit out this week. The only hints we will give you are that you’ll need to get outside (and be a little active) to find this one. Adventure is waiting, so make sure you are on the lookout for an email and clues from your campus coordinator to get started. Also be sure to set your social posts to the “public” setting so we can track your participation.

To join in the fun, upload a photo of yourself at the final scavenger hunt location to the Campus Challenge website or app and share your photo using #TNFChallenge and #OutdoorNation via the website’s social tools.

Prizes

When you log and share your scavenger hunt activity, you will be entered to win a Litus 32 backpack from The North Face (one person from each participating school will be randomly selected to win the backpack.) Be sure to set your social media profile to public and use the hashtags to be eligible for this promotion!

The prizes don’t stop there!

Everyone who participates in the scavenger hunt and follows the above sharing instructions will be entered to win a trip valued at up to $2,000 to one of these five national parks: Yosemite, Rocky Mountain, Glacier, Mount Rainer, and Acadia. One person who participates will be randomly selected to receive this prize. Outdoor Nation will work with the winner to arrange the trip.


TIE BREAKER INFORMATION - To determine the winner of Outsider of the Year (national individual winner) and Most Outdoorsy Person (on each campus) there will be tie breakers the week of October 16th. More details coming after the conclusion of the Challenge.
