People who take their outdoor activities to a Wyoming State Park this summer could help their favorite park win $100,000 through Coca-Cola’s “America is Your Park” campaign.

This year, the more people move, the more votes they can earn for their favorite park. By registering at and linking foursquare and MapMyFitness accounts, individuals can “Take it To the Park” for even more opportunities to turn physical activity into votes.

  1. ) Earn ten (10) votes each day by logging at least 20 minutes of physical activity using MapMyFitness
  2. ) Earn five (5) votes per day by “Checking in” at a park via foursquare
  3. ) Earn one (1) vote by clicking online at
  4. using a computer or smartphone
To encourage more activity outdoors, votes will be doubled on "National Get Outdoors Day” (June 8), the first day of summer (June 21) and the last weekend of voting (July 13 and 14). National Get Outdoors Day is led by the USDA Forest Service and the American Recreation Coalition to encourage healthy, active outdoor fun at sites across the nation.

The three parks that receive the most votes by July 15, will be awarded recreation grants in the following amounts: First Place – $100,000; Second Place – $50,000; and, Third Place – $25,000. In addition, a $15,000 grant will be awarded at random to another park that places in one of the remaining top 25 spots. These recreation grants are provided to help restore, rebuild or enhance activity areas in national, state or local parks where people can play and be active.

Coca-Cola has supported efforts to maintain and rebuild parks across the nation for more than 40 years. The Company has donated more than $14 million to date in recreation grants and partnerships to help keep families active in the great outdoors. Through America Is Your Park, Coca-Cola is continuing its partnership with the National Park Foundation, America’s State Parks and the National Recreation and Parks Association.
