Earlier this week Coca-Cola launched the "America Is Your Park" campaign to encourage millions of Americans to get active outdoors and to cast a vote for their favorite park in order to win a $100,000 recreation grant made possible by Coca-Cola's Live Positively initiative.
From July 29 to August 31, people can go to LivePositively.com to cast a vote for their favorite state or national park to win the title of "America's Favorite Park" and a $100,000 grant from Coca-Cola for new activity equipment such as bikes (much needed in Smokies) and kayaks, or for the restoration and construction of activity areas.
Right now, it's basically a two-way race between the Smokies and Little Ocmulgee State Park out of Georgia to win the prize. George Bagby State Park is a somewhat distant third.
Between now and 8/31, you can vote as often as you like. As we all know, the Smokies sure could use that money.
