Congratulations Shelbie!

Our Shout-Out Winner is…

We’re excited to announce that our Shout Out contest winner is Shelbie Huard! She’s getting a cool $750 discount on her Fair Trade program in Guatemala!

Our Community Outreach Coordinator, Eric, had the fun job of giving her a call to break the happy news. Her reaction? Gold.


A heartfelt thanks to our whole shout-out team this year – you helped bring backpacktivism to hundreds of university students across North America, and we couldn’t be more proud.

Shelbie won’t be our only winner though… everyone who applies by our early bird deadline on Feb 26 will be entered to win their whole program fee! And the Refer-A-Buddy contest is still running strong! Keep telling your friends and networks about OG because we’ll be sending out $100 gift cards to MEC or REI each time your friends join OG.

Let’s find more backpacktivists!
