Seeking to drum up support for the burgeoning network of trails in the region, the William Penn Foundation and the Delaware Valley Regional Planning Commission have announced a contest to come up with a name for it.
The name is meant to foster the sense of a unified network of trails from South Jersey to the far reaches of Chester County — though it’s also supposed to respect the existing identities of popular individual trails, like the Schuylkill River Trail.
The winner gets $250, and submissions are due midnight Dec. 16.
The William Penn Foundation has made the expansion of the Philadelphia region’s trails a priority, working with DVRPC to give $10 million worth of grants to address specific needs in the system.
Details on how to enter a submission can be found here.
