Looking for a fun, new app to download to your phone? Look no further than Explore150.

Explore 150 has been created to help you celebrate Manitoba's 150th anniversary. The goal of the app is to inspire you to visit 150 destinations across the province in 2020. The app also offers instant reward by way of unique Manitoba experiences and the ability to earn entries for a chance to win one of several monthly and yearly prizes.

When you visit one of the destinations, use the app to check in. In-app Badges can be earned by completing challenges like Beachy Keen, Joie de Vivre and Walk in the Wild

Every check in you complete you'll be entered into the monthly draws with prizes valued at $1,000 or more, as well as a chance to win one of the yearly grand prizes.

No two destinations are the same! Locations off the beaten path might be worth additional entries.
