In 2020, we launched our Outdoors Together Initiative to create inclusive access to the outdoors for our local communities. And in the summer of 2021, we introduced the As Colorful As Nature Giveaway to promote diversity in the outdoors. Now, we’re back with the As Colorful As Nature Winter Giveaway in partnership with [TBD] and [TBD]!

This giveaway is open to all, but is focused on providing equity to people of color, promoting the normalization of black and brown bodies outdoors, and providing a platform for any person of color to share their story and inspire others. We invite all entrants to help us lift up BIPOC voices in the outdoors, together!

HOW TO ENTER:

Earn 1 entry:
Leave a comment on our contest post, tagging someone that has inspired you to get outdoors. Then, follow @sportsbasement on Instagram!

Earn 10 entries:
Post a photo of you and your inspirational adventure buddy, including @SportsBasement and #AsColorfulAsNature in the caption. We'd love to hear what makes them so inspiring!

That's it! We'll repost every photo we can onto our IG Stories, and we’ll share your stories on our website and in our emails, so everyone that pays attention to us will pay attention to you. All entries must be submitted prior to 11:59 pm PST on Feb. 28, 2022.

We know we can't outfit everyone, but we want to make sure there's a chance to be rewarded for the effort of sharing your story. Keep in mind that there is no right answer or limit to what you can or can’t share. We want to promote equity and diversity by giving you our platform to use to inspire others, spread awareness about organizations and communities that you feel deserve attention, and showcase that nature belongs to everyone. We reserve the right to not repost submissions that do not support the goal of diversifying the outdoors, though by law all submissions are accepted as entries to win the Giveaway.
