Take Your Child to a Forest – and Enter the Discover the Forest Sweepstakes!

A few months ago, I told you about the US Forest Service’s new campaign, Where the Other You Lives, which encourages kids to get outdoors more and experience nature. Now, they’ve added a new component to their campaign that will encourage the artist (or photographer) in your child!

The Discover the Forest sweepstakes is an interactive photo/art sweepstakes that encourages kids to head into the forest and return with a photo or piece of artwork that somehow represents their journey. Simply upload the picture on their website, and they’ll post the pictures on their gallery so your friends and family can check them out and even vote on the ones they like best.

All those who submit artwork are eligible to win a $100 or $1000 The North Face Gift Certificate! Also, anyone who votes is eligible to win a $50 The North Face Gift Certificate! It's a great incentive to get your families and friends to check out your child's masterpiece online.

Go to to enter. And don’t forget to spend some time with your kids outdoors!
