The sun is shining, the birds are singing, and it is time to explore the outdoors for the Outside Contest! Whether it is bright and warm or chilly and rainy, there is always something you can do outside. Exercise, adventures, fun and games, camping trips, and simply sitting in the sun are what really make the summer months enjoyable.

Share your outdoorsy projects and you could win a Beach LT Kayak from Oru Kayak! If you’ve got the camping bug, try for our special judges’ prize for the Best Camping Hacks! Get off the couch and get outside because there is a whole world waiting out there and so many things to do and make for the Outside Contest.
