Jekyll Island Authority competes for America's Favorite Park

JEKYLL ISLAND, GA (WTOC) -

From 12 p.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, members of the Jekyll Island Authority will be traveling to the Glynn Place Mall in Brunswick to win votes for Jekyll Island in the 3rd annual Coca-Cola America's Favorite Park campaign.

"We are determined to get people to vote for Jekyll Island. We know people all over the state love Jekyll Island and will vote for us if they know about the campaign. It's our job to spread the word as far as we can, so we are going to help people sign up and vote," said Kring-Rowan, who has coordinated efforts for weeks on the Island to help the park grab the No. 1 spot in the campaign, in a press release.

The online voting poll aims to generate support for the nation's state parks. The top park will win a $100,000 recreation grant, second place will get $50,000 and third place will receive $25,000. Also, one random park between 4th and 25th place will get a $15,000 grant. Last year, Jekyll Island landed in 5th place.

Voting will run through Jul 15. For more information visit www.jekyllisland.com or www.livepositively.com
