Win up to $100,000 for your park



coca-colaCoca-Cola has just notified us of a wonderful opportunity.  Starting now through September 6, Coca-Cola is running their second annual America Is Your Park campaign where individuals have the opportunity to vote for their favorite Park. The Park with the most votes has the opportunity of being awarded a $100,000 recreational grant along with the bragging rights and title of "America's Favorite Park!"

You can download a zip file containing a promotional toolkit to help you publicize this contest.  Click here to download.

This year, this also a second and third place prize ($50,000 and $25,000).  I think it is safe to say that any of our Parks are quite deserving of this award, not to mention could truly benefit from not only the grant award but the national recognition brought though this type of competition.  With that said, we are asking for your help.  Attached is a tool kit with all the information you could need to promote this campaign. Unfortunately, we don't have a lot of time and the competition has begun.  

Also, feel free to visit http://multivu.prnewswire.com/mnr/coca-cola/50918/.  This website gives a wonderful explanation of the campaign as well as the link that will take you to the voting website.  It has already been posted to the state Friends Facebook page as well as the website. These are both great places to start but opportunities don't end there!

As always, thank you to each of you for your dedication and help and we hope you join us in our excitement in helping our favorite parks in yet a new way of promotion and support.
