GoPro Expedition/Exploration Challenge


The Congressional Award and GoPro have partnered to give Congressional Award participants the opportunity to uniquely record their Expedition/Exploration portion of the Award.

We are hosting a contest to give away 100 GoPros and accessories (Sportsman Gun/Rod/Bow Mount, Magenta Dive Filter, and Mic Stand Mount) to current Awardees who are pursuing the next level of the Award.

This contest is intended to challenge young people to travel to new destinations for their Expeditions or Explorations, immersing themselves in local cultures and environments while sharing their journey with the world.

Selections will be made by the Congressional Award National Office based on individual contestant’s Expedition/Exploration proposal.

Following review, two finalists will be selected to represent each state. In order to represent a specific state, medalists must reside in or travel to that state for their Expedition/Exploration. A number of cameras have also been set aside for participants living/traveling abroad, on military bases, and within U.S. territories. Finalists will be announced via email and mailed their GoPro and accessories. Those who are selected must provide a physical mailing address.

All video submissions must be uploaded to the GoPro and Congressional Award YouTube sites for review. One winner will be selected to receive round-trip airfare for two and a one-night stay in Washington, D.C. to attend the Congressional Award Youth and Technology Dinner, where the winning video will be presented.
