Nexen sponsors canoe adventure contest

May 12, 2015

Nexen Tire America Inc. is sponsoring the C&K Dream Your Adventure Contest to encourage everyday people to embark on a life-changing paddling adventure.

Offering $10,000 to fund a paddling expedition, Dream Your Adventure is the world’s largest contest of its kind open exclusively to paddlers, the tire maker says.

Applying couldn’t be easier. Paddlers simply go to the entry form on Nexen's Facebook page to describe their dream adventure and upload a photo. The entrant who best captures the imagination of fellow paddlers, as determined by online voting, will win $10,000 to put toward their expedition.

Entries are being accepted now until June 20, with online voting set for June 21 to July 21. The winner will be announced Aug. 5 at the 2015 Canoe & Kayak Awards in Salt Lake City.

“We realize that many dreams and aspirations begin where the road ends, especially for paddling enthusiasts," says Jaclyn Quesnel, marketing specialist for Nexen Tire America. "We’re excited to partner with Canoe & Kayak and create a contest that will potentially change someone’s life by turning a dream in to a reality."

Entrants must be legal residents of the United States or District of Columbia and at least 18 years of age at the time of entry. Nexen is looking for passionate solo or team paddlers who will use the prize money to embark on a once in a lifetime extraordinary journey to be completed by March 31, 2017.
