Cooper Sponsors Contest for Adventure Travelers

April 7, 2016

Cooper Tire and Rubber Co. is teaming up with Expedition Portal, an online community of adventure travelers, for the Cooper Discoverer’s Contest.

The adventurers, known as “overlanders,”  generally explore the world on motorcycles or four-wheel-drive vehicles, but anyone with a zest for the outdoors can enter the contest. Adventurers need to submit personal stories of adventure —tales of the trail—for a chance to win a set of Cooper Discoverer STT Pro tires, or a trip to the Overland Expo East 2016 near Asheville, N.C.

The contest runs through July 29 and is available at

To enter, simply write a tale of the trail—a minimum of 600 words—and submit at least four accompanying photos at Entries must use the words “Cooper Discoverer” in the title and in the story. Forum members will vote for their favorite stories. Each month of the contest, an entrant will win a set of five Cooper Discoverer STT Pro tires. At the end of the contest, one grand prize winner will win a set of five Cooper Discoverer STT Pro tires and will also receive a trip to Overland Expo East 2016.

“Exploring and conquering new challenges is the essence of the Discoverer line,” says Jessica Egerton, Cooper’s director of brand development. “Expedition Portal is the ideal community for Cooper to connect with and encourage dedicated overlanders to get outside and keep discovering. We hope this contest brings that spirit of adventure to life and rewards those that love the outdoors as much as we do at Cooper.”

“With more than 100,000 community members who are passionate about overland travel, we’re excited to offer Expedition Portal members an incentive to continue exploring and sharing their stories through the Cooper Discoverer contest,” says Scott Brady, CEO of Overland International. “While some roads might not be rough or technically challenging, they are the means to an end, with the true pursuit being experiencing and learning about the world. We feel this effort with Cooper will inspire that.”
