SheJumps, a 501c(3) nonprofit organization with a mission to bring more women and children outside, is announcing a video contest to send two women on an all-expenses paid trip to the ultimate backcountry and powder riding experience: Tailgate Alaska in Valdez this spring. The video, submitted via the SheJumps.org facebook page, will be judged by an expert panel. The public will also have a say in the contest with two Runner Up prizes and a people's choice award, supported generously by RAMP skis & snowboards, as well as Flylow Gear.
The criteria for the video is to partner up, get creative, and get into the backcountry. The short video (1-3 minutes) must exemplify why you want to go to Tailgate Alaska, demonstrate savvy backcountry travel and, of course, team work. Fill out the form on the SheJumps.org Facebook page and enter the URL of your video (from either YouTube or Vimeo) by the contest deadline on February 28th, 2013. For more information please refer to the official rules and regulations or our website, SheJumps.org.
