Olympic Spirit Photo Contest

To celebrate the 90th Anniversary of the 1932 Games and the 2022 Olympic Winter Games in Beijing, we invite you to share your Olympic Spirit. The Olympic spirit is best expressed in the Olympic Creed: “The most Important thing in the Olympic Games is not to win but to take part, just as the most important thing in life is not the triumph but the struggle. The essential thing is not to have conquered but to have fought well.”

The Olympic Games are not just about the athletes who compete, but the chance to celebrate our shared humanity. In Lake Placid, the Olympic spirit lives and breathes on a daily basis, and especially during the Winter Olympics. Share your Olympic spirit with us, for a chance to win a Lake Placid prize pack, by uploading a photo to your social media. To enter tag @LakePlacidLegacySites and include the hashtag #LPGoforGold.
