If you’ve got a knack for guessing things right, you could win a trip to Duluth.

The contest is hosted by the Port Authority and Visit Duluth. 

All you have to do is make the best prediction of when the first ocean-going vessel of the 2015 shipping season will pass under the Aerial Lift Bridge.

You will win a prize package of meals, attractions and more. 

Port Authority officials are ready to see the first sign of spring.

“It’s really seeing that first one that has crossed the Atlantic come all the way through the Great Lakes Seaway System. That really signals the start of the shipping season for those folks who are boat nerds and ship watchers,” said the Duluth Seaway Port Authority’s Director of Public Relations, Adele Yorde. 

All entries must be in before the Soo Locks open March 25th.

Last year the first saltie passed through on May 7th.
