Snowshoe manufacturer Tubbs is stomping forward with new ways to get kids outside. The company recently announced a new “Get Outdoors” Kids’ contest, open to schools and non-profits nationwide. The new contest is designed to help kids and teen groups get outside and explore during the winter.
Two winners will receive snowshoes for their entire class or group, snowshoes for the adult leaders, and will be provided the Winter Fit® for Kids Programming. Tubbs’ Programming brings a fun educational aspect to discovering the winter landscape with step-by-step guidance for establishing snowshoe programs.
Entrants will be asked to submit an essay and explain in 500 words or less, what sets their classroom or group apart from other programs, why they feel their group should win and what they envision doing if they received the snowshoes.
“We’re excited to provide these organizations with the necessary tools and resources to get youngsters out on the snow during the winter,” says Sarah Rose, Tubbs’ marketing manager.
Snowshoeing, one of the most accessible winter sports, is ideal for getting kids and teens outside when cooler weather sets in. “It’s important to stay active in the wintertime and snowshoeing is great option because it’s as simple as walking, and it’s a fun way to explore the snow,” adds Rose.
In exchange for the snowshoes and programming, Tubbs will ask the winning organizations for a monthly trip report throughout the winter to share with the Tubbs community.

Note: Contest only applicable to public or private schools and outdoor outreach non-profit, youth related organizations, elementary and middle school aged kids preferred. Each organization must be able to submit a Tax ID number.
