Former Knight moves forward in contest

Thursday, December 8, 2011

Northview graduate Caitlin Dugan recently found out she is in the top four in Epic World Travel's contest "Do Something Epic." If Dugan wins, she would have the opportunity to travel the world while using social media such as blogs, Facebook and Twitter to write updates.
Caitlin Dugan, a 2002 Northview graduate, has made it to the final round of an international travel contest.

Dugan, along with three other individuals, are one step closer to winning the contest called 'Do Something Epic,' which is hosted by the travel company Epic World Travel. Participants of the contest have been playing for a chance to travel the world for a year while blogging about their experiences.

Dugan forwarded the official statement to The Brazil Times for the final four, which stated how Epic World Travel made its decision.

"It came down to who we believed was worldly experienced enough yet could still see the world from a fresh perspective," Epic World Travel said in the statement.

"Someone strong enough to cope with the harsh itinerary, yet insightful enough to convey their experiences for everyone else to enjoy. We needed someone with lots of energy that could be channeled into a fun and informative round the world blog, (Facebook) update, Twitter etc."

According to the statement, Epic World Travel will continue to talk with the finalists before a decision on the winner is made. Dugan, a seasoned traveler, is living in Exmouth, Western Australia, while she saves money to continue her travels in January.
