CARLSBAD, Calif. (KGTV) — A North County company is offering one lucky person the chance to pursue their passion without worrying about the funding to start.

The contest is being offered by Carlsbad-based apparel company prAna. The company is looking for one person who is willing to quit their day job and pursue their dream, offering the winner $100,000 to begin their new career.

“The goal of this promotion is to spread our 'Clothing for Positive Change' philosophy,” said Jeff Haack, vice president of global marketing at prAna. “By asking the question, ‘how can prAna help you affect positive change in your life,' we are giving our audience a means to share their stories about what positive change looks like for them.”

Think you are the right fit for the opportunity? To apply, submit a one- to three-minute video between Aug. 15 and Sept. 16 explaining what your current job is and what your dream job would be — the more inspirational the better. Applicants are also encouraged to show their passion in action.

Submission will be reviewed based on passion, boldness, and originality. A winner will be selected and asked to quit their job and share updates on their new journey. Funding will then be distributed in four payments.
