Win a family outing with Exploring Arkansas host Chuck Dovish

Posted on 15 Mar 2012

Ever wondered …hmmm… what it would be like to hang out with Chuck during one of his grand adventures around the Natural State? HereÂ’s your chance to sign up for a chance to take your family to meet him in person and enjoy an outing to one of ArkansasÂ’s plethora of beautiful vistas, trails, historic places, or parks.

Just visit the contest form here to enter your family and (crossing fingers here) you might be randomly drawn to hang out with Chuck – and the possibility of seeing your family in one of his future episodes!

While your fingers are a-blazinÂ’ on our simple sign-up form, why donÂ’t you click on over to our AETN Facebook page and Like us so you can stay in step with AETN programs, events, and contests like this one.

And if you just need a little more of Chuck and his journeys, visit the "Exploring Arkansas" site to watch past shows, read ChuckÂ’s blog and more. YouÂ’ll also want to check back in to the Exploring Arkansas website over the next few months for an expanded site that will included a family planning guide to where you want to go in the state based on region, activity, season and more.

TUNE IN: "Exploring Arkansas" Mondays at 6:30 p.m.

Contest Details

A winning family (up to six family members) will be chosen at random to spend a day with Dovish as he tapes a family-friendly episode of "Exploring Arkansas." Dovish will aim to introduce the family to some of his favorite places and activities suitable for all ages, in turn allowing them to explore Arkansas with him. Contest winners will be treated to a hike or similar activity at a location of Dovish's choosing on a weekend. The outing will be filmed by an AETN production crew and segments may be used for an upcoming episode of "Exploring Arkansas."

Winners will be notified via email on May 1. Winners are responsible for their own transportation to and from the location Dovish chooses on the day of the outing. The shoot location will be announced in April.
