Adventure Outings has teamed up with Outdoor Nation to enroll Chico State in the Outdoor Nation Campus Challenge 2015. The competition consists of 60 schools and determines which has the most active students.

“It’s a contest trying to get as many people outdoors and as active as possible,” said Keith Crawford, Adventure Outings Assistant Coordinator.

The winning school can receive up to $3,000 and a gear bank filled with equipment from The North Face and REI. Individual prizes are awarded weekly to students who earn the most points for their college.

Points are earned by logging outdoor activities, which include biking, camping, climbing and fishing. Each activity requires a minimum of 30 minutes. A selfie will also need to be taken and submitted as proof of the activity, Crawford said.

The competition will run from Sept. 6 to Oct. 17. Currently Chico State sits in the seventh spot with 8830 points.
