Bundle Up & Be Out There!

Kids need to be outside all year long, especially in the winter when days are short and we’re all a little more cooped up than usual. It helps burn off energy, stay fit and get mentally prepared for all the activities in their busy day.

For extra motivation to get outside in the cold weather, Be Out There hosted a Winter Photo Contest. You submitted pictures of your munchkins enjoying the winter wonderland for the chance to win the grand prize of a $100 Visa Gift Card! Five lucky runners up received subscriptions to Ranger Rick magazine!

What kind of photos?

Each photo must:

  • Be taken outside (cities, parks, backyards – any outdoor space is acceptable)
  • Include winter or cold weather elements (outerwear, snow, hot cocoa)
  • Feature at least one child (under the age of 12)
  • Optional elements include parents, pets, snowmen, sleds, ice skates, trees, boots, mittens, hats, snow angels and other outdoor play props. We aren't picky.

Finalists were selected based on photo composition, originality, cold weather creativeness, and overall level of cuteness. Voting was open to the public and the winning photograph was chosen based on total number of votes.

We hope everyone had FUN and enjoyed the great outdoors!
