One Keen Contest: Stand Up, Stand Out, Stand For


The folks at Keen Footwear are sponsoring not one, not two, but three whole contests, with more than $25,000 up for grabs.

If you're the artsy type, you'll want to take a gander at the Stand Up contest, where you're invited to submit a creative, original piece of film, art, photography, or journalism devoted to "sustainability, positive environmental change, and/or raising environmental awareness."Jocks and athletes can participate in the Stand Out contest by writing a creative, original statement, 200 words or less, about your passion for a qualifying outdoor activity and how this supports sustainability and environmental change.

The Stand For contest asks good-old-fashioned activists to submit an image or short video depicting your work, as well as a description, 200 words or less, of your particular cause and how you'll use the award to bolster environmental awareness.

You have till 11:59 p.m. PT on Dec. 31, 2007 to submit your entries. Details can be found on Keen's Web site. ::Keen Footwear
