Have You Entered The Centennial Project Yet?

Blair GuildNPF Blog

You’re using the #FindYourPark and #EncuentraTuParque hashtags around the web, but did you know that the photos and memories you’re already sharing could win you some awesome prizes?

I’m all ears, er…eyes, tell me more!

We’re looking for the best national park stories as part of The Centennial Project – a contest to find and celebrate the top 100 Find Your Park submissions about our incredible national parks!

How’s this different from just using the #FindYourPark tag with my pics?

When you use the #FindYourPark hashtag, and respond with #FYPYes to the prompt from us, you share your photo as part of the Find Your Park gallery but this doesn’t enter you into the contest. To enter the contest, you have to upload your submission through the site.

Centennial Ambassadors: Bella Thorne, Roselyn Sanchez, Bill Nye, Terrence J, or Mary Lambert

Ok, so why should I submit my story?

The five grand prize winners will have their best national park memories used as inspiration for an original project by one of our Centennial Ambassadors. That’s right – Bella Thorne, Roselyn Sanchez, Bill Nye, Terrence J, or Mary Lambert could turn YOUR STORY into a unique Find Your Park project!

These grand prize winners will also win two VIP tickets to the centennial celebration, two annual national park passes, a fully-guided REI Adventures weekend getaway for two to a national park, plenty of swag from Subaru and Coleman, and a Find Your Park gear prize package.

You said “top 100 submissions,” what about the other 95?

We also have plenty of amazing prizes in store for 45 first prize winners and 50 second prize winners.

We want you to share whatever a national park means to you. Upload a pic of your adventure in Grand Canyon National Park, write a poem about how the history and music of New Orleans Jazz National Historical Park moved you, share a video of the beautiful ruins at Tumacacori National Historical Park — we want everyone to help share the rich diversity of our over 400 national parks!

So what are you waiting for?

Upload your favorite national park stories for a chance to win prizes through the Centennial Project!
