Prize Winners Announced

The seventh annual Harford Streams Summer Adventure drew 1,242 participants – 1,064 people and 178 dogs – in 2022, raising awareness and support for protecting Harford County’s natural waterways.

Developed by Harford County government’s Watershed Protection and Restoration Office, this award-winning program encourages citizens of all ages to take selfies at various locations and write a brief comment about their experiences to earn T-shirts and be eligible for other prizes. A free app allows participants to easily upload photos, enter locations using GIS, and submit their comments.

By visiting at least seven Harford stream locations this year, 498 adventurers qualified for a free T-shirt, sponsored in part by Visit Harford, and 40 furry friends received a bandana.

By visiting at least 15 locations, participants qualified for the grand prize drawing – a kayak trip for eight people at Anita C. Leight Estuary Center. This year’s winner was the Cosentino-Tich family of Havre de Grace.
