South Shore Proponents see the opportunity in the expansion of the South Shore Rail into Dyer and someday a goal to reach Lowell and Valparaiso.
The Times is holding a short video contest entitled “How Do You Ride?” targeted to amateur Lake and Porter County filmakers.
How to enter: Create a 2 minute video about why you would like to see the South Shore expand in Northwest Indiana. The deadline to submit the short films is 5:00 p.m. on Friday, February 28th, 2014.
Video themes should be focused on what the expansion would mean to northwest Indiana and be no more than 2 minutes in length.
Entries are encouraged to use their own creative expression to celebrate the art, beauty, inspiration and a personal connection to the South Shore Line and its expansion.
One winner will be selected to receive a Go Pro video camera. A select group of submitted videos will be recognized on the NWI.com website.
Additionally, contest participants may have their work publically displayed or used on The Times website, The Times Social media outlets and additional sponsor websites/outlets.
