Advocacy group Save the Boundary Waters has teamed up with Riverhorse and Merrimack Canoes – maker of Riverhorse’s canoe of choice – to give away more than $7,000 in prizes to contestants who submit a $20 entry fee and explain one from-the-heart reason why the BWCA (and places like it) should be protected. The Grand Prize is a custom Merrimack Tennessean canoe identical to the one Riverhorse uses in his film “A Northern Light”. Thousands of dollars in rods, packs, and tackle will be given away to runners up. Entries will be judged by Riverhorse and non-writers take note: He is not looking for fancy writing or flowing prose. He is looking for insight and sincerity – Why is the BWCA important and what do these wilderness spaces mean to you and to our planet?
Only 1,000 entries will be accepted. All proceeds will go to Save The Boundary Waters. Prizes include shipping and no additional purchase is necessary. The entry window ends at 11:59 p.m. on December 31, 2020.
