Today you have a unique chance to help nature conservancy without ever leaving your house-and you may even win an award! We are excited to give you the opportunity to win a $1,000 or $500 scholarship using only your writing skills. Twice a year, we hold a competition to award the best writers who support a responsible approach to outdoor activities!

WHAT WE STRIVE FOR

Hikers often negatively impact the surrounding environment without even knowing it by transporting invasive species, disturbing wildlife, leaving waste, etc.

We're inspired by the Leave No Trace principles and want to encourage every backpacker to follow these rules.

The Hike & Cycle Scholarship is all about raising environmental awareness among youth by giving them a solid incentive in the form of a scholarship. What we are trying to achieve here is to make more people understand that the environment is in dire need of their attention and help.

PARTICIPATION REQUIREMENTS

A) You must be currently enrolled in high school, university, or college. Applications from all countries are accepted.

B) You must create an original list of nature-saving rules.

C) The winners will be required to send us proof of their educational status.

REASONS TO APPLY

A) The first place winner will get $1,000 and the second place, $500. Note: each participant may send in only one submission and win only one award.

B) We use student-generated content to write articles and make infographics on various topics concerning the environment. Your contribution will help raise awareness among people reading our blog posts!

C) The best authors can count on their writing being published on our blog. Naturally, that means our readers will see your name!
