National Geographic Adventure is sending two lucky individuals to Washington, D.C. to attend their annual Adventurer of the Year awards ceremony, scheduled to take place on November 20th of this year. The event is held at the National Geographic Society Headquarters, where Nat Geo explorers and previous winners of the award, such as Andrew Skurka, will be on hand to share in the festivities.
In order to be considered for the contest, entrants will need to Send us an email to [email protected] containing your: name, mailing address, phone number, email address, and age. In addition, you’ll want to tell them about your favorite adventure destination, anywhere in the world, and what you enjoy doing there. Keep it at 150 words or less, and you’ll be entered to win the grand prize, which is:
One winner and a guest will receive round-trip air transportation to Washington, D.C., three-night double-occupancy accommodations, and entrance for two to the Adventurer of the Year event on November 20, 2008. The approximate retail value of this prize is $2,500.
Sounds like a great deal to me. I’d love to go hang out at the NG HQ for a few hours and meet the top adventurers that they’ll be honoring. That issue of the magazine is always amongst my favorite, and it would be great to be their to catch everything first hand. I suppose I’d better fire up my e-mail program and get writing huh? Good luck to everyone. This looks to be a great prize.
