Will you be doing anything outdoors on October 17, 2015, for half an hour at a stretch? If it's not gardening chores or involving organized sports, please consider taking a photo to help the College of St. Benedict/St. John's University.

Outdoor Nation is sponsoring a Campus Challenge. The school (out of 56 registered) with the most points will win outdoor gear from REI and The North Face for students to borrow. Last year CSB/SJU received tents and cold-weather sleeping bags. Schools get points when someone logs a photo showing them doing an outdoor activity.

Easy steps:
1. Do something outside for half an hour.
Eligible activities include: adventure racing, biking, bird-watching / wildlife-watching, geocaching, camping, climbing, fishing, hammocking, hiking, backpacking, hunting, restoration and trail maintenance, gardening (chores don't count!), walking - fun and fitness, running/jogging, paddling, water activities (outdoor), snow-sports, yoga (outdoor), skateboarding, outdoor clinics /training /events, outdoor games (frisbee, horseshoes, etc.) and stargazing.

2. Take a photo to show you are doing something outdoors. It should include a body part or shadow. If you don't want your face all over the Net, you can include your hand, your foot, the back of your head, etc. Horizontal format is best.
3. Sign up and select College of St. Benedict/St. John for the school.
4. Upload your photo before 10:59 p.m. October 17th.

You can submit up to five photos. There is a FAQ.

In all fairness, I should tell you that UMD and the College of St. Scholastica are also in the contest. You might be able to help St. Scholastica get to 500 active participants, meaning people who have logged at least one activity for them. They are in sixth place currently. If they make it to 500 active participants, the school will get $500. UMD is very far down on the list.
