Our friends with the Appalachian Trail Conservancy keep coming up with creative ways to promote the AT. Their latest? A contest where you tell your Appalachian Trail story and maybe win a prize.
The ATC wants to know how the AT has impacted your life, so they're accepting entries for the myATstory Contest.
Everyone who has set boot on the Trail has a tale to tell. Victories. Injuries. Loves won and lost. Bears. Rocks. Fears. Hungers. Reaching Springer or Katahdin -- or not.
Now through January 31, 2017, entries will be accepted and judged by the ATC. The 20 best will be published on the ATC website. Pop them a video of your hike or use the medium of your choice. How you tell your Appalachian Trail story is up to you.
