The Appalachian Trail Conservancy (ATC) — to commemorate the 75th anniversary of the completion of the AT — is hosting a video contest to find out what people love most about the A.T.
The contest entitled “Why Do You Love the Appalachian Trail?” is accepting submissions until Sept. 2. The grand prize winner will receive several prizes including the opportunity to have their video screened in theaters during the ATC’s membership drive this fall.
Videos must be no longer than three minutes and must answer the question, “Why do you love the Appalachian Trail?” Each participant can only submit one video and must adhere to the ATC’s Leave No Trace™ principles.
“Everyone has their own reasons for hiking the Appalachian Trail,” said Javier Folgar, marketing and communications manager of the ATC. “This contest provides the opportunity for Appalachian Trail enthusiasts to showcase to the world what the Trail means to them in their lives.”
The ATC’s Facebook fans will have the opportunity to vote for their favorite videos. For more information or to submit a video visit www.appalachiantrail.org/videocontest.
