The Outside Magazine 'Adventure Grant'

In celebration of their 35th anniversary Outside Magazine is seeking proposals for its first annual Adventure Grant, a $10,000 endowment to help fund a "smart, creative, and (perhaps) slightly foolhardy project" that they will feature in an upcoming issue.

Outside offers a few examples of the kinds of "audacious" missions they're looking for (taken from Outside stories):

* Sailing a homemade raft down the Hudson River

* Walking a perfectly straight line across Canada's Prince Edward Island

* Paddling a canoe from Portland, Oregon, to Portland, Maine

If interested, and you think you have the right stuff, simply submit your proposed adventure by May 18th. Outside will then conduct a vote at beginning on June 4th to decide the winner.
