HERE’S YOUR CHANCE TO WIN A FREE GOPRO!
The Congressional Award and GoPro have partnered to give Congressional Award participants the unique opportunity to document their Voluntary Public Service, Personal Development, Physical Fitness, or Expedition/Exploration activities.

We are hosting a contest to give away GoPro HERO+ cameras and accessories to current participants pursuing the Award. This contest is intended to challenge young people to travel to new destinations, immerse themselves in new environments, or capture an untold story through their Congressional Award journey.

The proposal window is now closed. Selections were made by The Congressional Award National Office based on individual contestant’s activity proposal.

Following review of the proposals, 100 finalists were selected to receive GoPro cameras to capture their activity. 45 Finalists were chosen in the first installment of the contest and will document their Expedition/Exploration. 55 Finalists were chosen in the second installment and will document activity across all four program areas.

All video submissions must be uploaded to a personal YouTube account adding GoPro and Congressional Award channels and “Congressional Award GoPro Challenge” as tags. The title of the video should include the contestant’s name and any other descriptors.

A winner from each installment will be selected to receive round-trip airfare for two and a one-night stay in Washington, D.C. to attend one of The Congressional Award’s marquee events, where the winning video will be presented.

All questions should be directed to the contest coordinator, Molly Geiser, at (202) 226-0130 or geiser@congressionalaward.org.
