Press Release: The City of Prattville

Coca-Cola is calling people out to their favorite park to vote this summer in the third annual "America is Your Park" campaign. The City of Prattville is asking its residents to help with voting. The park with the highest number of votes will win $100,000 in grant funds. Second place garners $50,000 and third place will win $25,000. Coca-Cola will award, at random, a $15,000 grant to a park that comes in 4th-25th place on the leaderboard by the end of the contest. Coca-Cola collaborated with the National Park Foundation, America's State Parks and the National Recreation & Park Association to develop the grants campaign.
