One Week Left to Enter the GORE-TEX® Brand Experience More Challenge

The winner will receive $10,000 towards planning their dream adventure

The GORE-TEX® brand Experience More Challenge ends on Wednesday, January 13, 2010 at 11:59 p.m. The online contest launched on December 3, 2009 in conjunction with the brand's new online community,

“We are seeing that people who love the outdoors also love to connect with one another and share their experiences,” states Melissa Riggs, GORE-TEX® brand marketing. “Our goal is to continue to provide a community where they can do just that.”

The Experience More Challenge invites community members to share their outdoor experiences for a chance to win the experience of their dreams. Members can submit photos of themselves “experiencing more” outdoors, and community members are invited to rate these experiences. Entries receiving a certain average rating will then be considered for six finalist positions, chosen by a panel of Gore representatives. The six finalists will receive GORE-TEX® gear and will be reevaluated by the online community, who will vote for the winner of the Experience More Challenge. The Grand Prize Winner will receive up to $10,000 towards planning his/her own dream experience, including expenses and gear. Additionally, the GORE-TEX® brand will donate $5,000 to one of 10 participating outdoor non-profits, to be selected by the winner.
