First Ship Contest

 

Visit Duluth First Ship Contest

First Ship to Duluth, MN harbor in 2014

Waiting for your ship to come in?
Duluth is a place that refreshes you. It quenches the thirst you've had to be somewhere and do something. It gets into you so deeply, you never really leave. That's the magic of Lake Superior, the world's largest freshwater lake.

Now, you can win a trip to the famed port city by entering the First Ship Contest. Just make the best prediction of when the first ocean-going vessel of the 2014 shipping season will pass under the Aerial Lift Bridge into Duluth, and your ship will come in, both literally and figuratively.

The prize package includes luxurious accommodations, delicious meals, and tickets to area attractions in Minnesota's beautiful city by the big lake.
