Play outside. Win free stuff.

Starting October 12, 2017, we are launching our Play for Keeps Giveaway on Instagram. If your kiddo completes a challenge from our 100 Things to Do Before You’re 12 list in time, they could win awesome prizes.

Thanks to our fantastic sponsors, you’ve got the chance to win a free Colorado State Parks annual pass from Colorado Parks and Wildlife, tickets to the Denver Zoo and Denver Botanic Gardens, and awesome outdoor gear from REI.
