Hikers often negatively impact the surrounding environment without even knowing it by transporting invasive species, disturbing wildlife, leaving waste, etc.
We’re inspired by the Leave No Trace principles and want to encourage every backpacker to follow these rules.

The Hike & Cycle Scholarship is all about raising environmental awareness among youth by giving them a solid incentive in the form of a scholarship. What they are trying to achieve here is to make more people understand that the environment is in dire need of their attention and help.

Prepare a list of nature-saving rules on one of the following subjects:

– The Nature-Saving Rules of Responsible Camping;
– How Hikers Can Make Sure That They Don’t Hurt Wildlife;
– Recommendations for Responsible Behavior Near Bodies of Water.

You’re free to focus on a specific outdoor activity (climbing, cycling, kayaking, etc.) or write more generally.
– Make up a creative, catchy title that reflects your ideas;
– Share the scholarship post on social media using Google+, Twitter, and Facebook. The links to the shared post must be sent along with your application;
– Send your list and all necessary links to scholarship@hikeandcycle.com.
