National Trails Day Photo Contest – 2016

National Trails Day is coming up (Saturday, June 4th) and we know a lot of you have events planned.
What a perfect opportunity for a photo contest!



  1. Host or participate in a National Trails Day event. Be sure to take lots of pictures.
  2. Post your best pictures (there’s no limit) on social media: Facebook and/or Twitter and/or Instagram. In order to enter your photo in the contest, you must tag The Corps Network (@TheCorpsNetwork) in your caption. Also remember to use #NationalTrailsDay and tag American Hiking Society (@AmericanHiking).

Deadline: you must post your pictures on social media on or before 9:00 a.m. (EDT) Monday, June 13th. We’ll announce the winner on our social channels on Wednesday, June 15th. Submissions will be judged by staff from The Corps Network and American Hiking Society.


  1. Who doesn’t like a little friendly competition among Corps? Show us that your NTD project is the best! 
  2. The American Hiking Society will share some of the pictures through their social channels. 
  3. We’re always looking for great pictures for our publications, website and social media. We’ll be sure to use pictures from this contest in our annual report and other nationally disseminated documents. Plus, we’ll feature the winning picture on our new Facebook banner. 


  • Get an action shot 
  • Take a before and after picture 
  • Make sure your NTD event is registered with AHS: 
  • In the caption, tell us where you are and what you’re doing
