Vote for America's favorite park
Submitted By Samira Hamid
Two of Hayward's beloved parks, Kennedy Park and Sulphur Creek Nature Center have been entered into Coca Cola's "America Is Your Park" contest. They compete in an online voter contest with local parks throughout the nation to win much-needed funds for park improvements. With just the click of a mouse, voters can help either park win up to $100,000 for First Prize. Parks that place in the top 25 will have a chance to win $15,000.
You can vote as many times as you want for as many parks as you want. Checking in at a park counts for 100 total votes! So vote daily, and vote often. Put Hayward on the map!
As part of Coca Cola's Live Positively campaign, the "America is Your Park" contest gives park lovers an opportunity to make a difference in their local community, where voters can help their favorite park receive one in four recreation grants from The Coca-Cola Company. These funds are provided to assist in restoring, rebuilding or enhancing places within the park where people can play and be active. Voters can vote online or by checking in at a park to earn more votes for their favorite park. The total number of votes earned will determine the winning parks. Contest ends July 15, 2012.
