Vermont ranks among the top 10 most natural places in the world, according to the judges at Nature Valley. Hardly a surprise to the state’s residents and visitors. The granola bar manufacturing company narrowed entrants’ worldwide locations from 70 to 10 in their recent "Where’s Your Nature Valley?" video online contest said The Burlington Free Press. Tyler Weeks and Ali Wise submitted a three-minute video of the Vermont winter activities they personally enjoy, including skiing, ice fishing, and sledding. The two UVM grads are among the ten finalists on the company’s page on YouTube where viewers can vote on their favorites. First prize is a $61,000 trip to the ends of the earth, from the Falkland Islands to the Arctic Svalbard. Second place gets you to Galapagos Islands and Peru. Weeks and Wise think their video has an edge in the competition. "There’s a lot of sincere enthusiasm in our video," Weeks said. "It was just fun." You can vote your support for their video – and Vermont – through March 13.
