What's Your Everest?

Fulfilling a quest takes vision, perseverance, and heart. When those fine qualities still leave you way short, it helps to have cash. For a shot at 10,000 quest-fulfilling dollars, enter Champion's "What's Your Everest?" contest.

Because the best things in life are free -- but so many other things aren't – Champion is granting one worthy person $10,000 to put towards their mission, whether that's starting their own business, or actually climbing Everest. To enter, just tell Champion about your personal Everest, either by uploading a video (5 minutes max), or an essay (2000 characters max). Finalists will be determined by site-visitor voting, with the winner selected according to five factors: authenticity (35%); clear plan for goal achievement (25%); creativity (15%); positive outlook (15%); and fit with the spirit of the Champion brand (10%).

Wearing a hilarious hat technically doesn't factor in, but that doesn't mean you shouldn't.
