Be Prepared Contest




days left



When the unexpected strikes it's always good to be prepared. Whether it's keeping an extra set of batteries in the kitchen drawer to deal with a blackout, or remembering to bring the waterproof matches while camping, being prepared is one of the most valuable human traits that keeps us safe when adversity strikes. Embrace your creativity and share the things that you've made so that you can "be prepared" for whatever challenges life may throw at you.

Projects like keeping a fresh water cache in the basement for places that have earthquakes, a set of warm clothes and canned food in the attic in places that can flood, a backup power supply in areas where the power goes out, or simply good ole fashioned camping skills that help make our time in the wilderness just a bit more comfortable are all eligible.

Go ahead, show us how you've prepared for life's unexpected challenges, and share the unique things you've made to make sure that you keep you and your family safe no matter what mother nature may throw at you. We'll learn hopefully learn something, share what we've made, and maybe even win some cool stuff along the way.
