Distler's video was selected as one of the top 25 out of hundreds submitted.

The winner will spend the summer hiking, rafting, and exploring with the Sierra Club's youth programs around the country, and video blogging about their experiences.  They'll also receive $2,000 worth of gear from The North Face and Planet Explore and a $2,500 stipend.
