Share Your Summer Water Fun for a Chance to Win a Pair of KEEN Shoes!

Did you have a blast on a waterway this summer and have a cool video to share about it? Want a chance to win a pair of KEEN shoes?

If you answered yes to both questions then this contest is for YOU!

The Georgia River Network and Outdoor Afro have teamed up to help share how people are enjoying their waterways all over the country – like these Outdoor Afros on California’s American River below!

All you have to do is submit your original, short (no more than 3 minute) video that shares what you enjoyed and valued about your local rivers and waterways over the summer!

Contest submissions will be posted on the Georgia River Network and Outdoor Afro social media pages, and five (5) finalists will be selected by Georgia River Network and Outdoor Afro fans, but ONE selected winner will get a  pair of KEEN shoes!

Here is how to enter:

  • Submit your video link below in the comments section, OR upload to the Outdoor Afro facebook page

We will announce the winner November 1st!

Good Luck!
