The #DelawareRiverMeans campaign is about starting one big conversation. What does the Delaware River mean to you? Share your stories and be inspired by others at the same time. Perhaps the beauty of the river inspires your art/creative work. Maybe hiking along the river is your favorite weekend activity. It could mean a place where you gather with loved ones for swimming, kayaking, or picnics. You may be moved by the history of this great river or how it seems to create communities all along its shores. We’ve created several categories for you to share your story and see the stories of others. Check them out, get inspired, join the conversation, and spread the word. When you do, you’ll be entered to win lots of amazing prizes to help you keep enjoying the Delaware River for years to come!
Everyone who enters their story, votes for their favorites, or signs up to hear more has a chance to win a t-shirt giveaway!
Each contest will have a winner based on how inspiring their story is. When you enter your story about fun, beauty, togetherness or history, you’ll have a chance to win a special prize chosen specially for that contest!
Everyone who shares their story during one or all of our contests will be entered to win our grand prize: a standup paddleboard package!
