Indiana DNR promoting outdoors via social media


INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — The Indiana Department of Natural Resources is asking people to share their times in the outdoors on social media.

The agency is sponsoring a contest that asks people to share outdoor experiences on Instagram.

Anyone who wishes to take part can post a photo and use the hashtag #getINoutdoors.

The state says participants should make sure to identify the subjects and locations in the photo and tag it indianadnr.

Photo sharers will be entered for a random chance to win a 2015 Annual Entrance Pass for Indiana state parks and reservoirs. The DNR may use the photos for promotional purposes.

The contest ends Sept. 19.
