We’re giving you the chance to explore your family history with an AncestryDNA kit!


UPDATE: This competition is now closed. Check out other stuff you can win here!

Ever wondered what stories and secrets your ancestry holds? Maybe you come from a long line of adventurers – that’d explain your obsession with the outdoors!

We’ve teamed up with Ancestry to give five lucky people the opportunity to journey back in time and discover their family’s past. Who knows, maybe you’ll end up connecting more deeply with people in the present as well!

What’s up for grabs?

Five lucky winners will receive an AncestryDNA kit + Traits. 

AncestryDNA is a simple at-home saliva test. Simply return the sample in the pre-paid box provided and your DNA results will then be processed at the lab. You’ll receive an email when your results are ready to explore on the AncestryDNA website.

The data from your 700,000 markers is compared to population data from over 1,800 global regions and your results are sent back with a breakdown of your ethnicity by percentage. You’ll also be sent a list of people whose DNA matches yours, along with info on just how related you are.


How do I enter?

Entering couldn’t be simpler! Just fill out the form above and you’ll go in the draw to win! 

The lucky duck winner will be selected on October 25th.

Good luck!

But won’t they use my DNA to clone me?

Nope! During the DNA kit process, you get to decide whether you want your DNA sample to be stored or not. If you don’t consent to Ancestry storing your DNA, it’ll be destroyed after the test. If you’re happy for them to keep it, it’ll only be used again if new products become available.

And there’s no need to worry about your personal details or history getting leaked – your test sample is linked to an activation code in the testing facility, not your name.

So if exploring your family history and identity is as fascinating to you as exploring the natural world, enter the comp today! You never know what new connections you could uncover.
