Bastrop State Park competing for $100K Coca-Cola grant
BASTROP -- Bastrop State Park, still recovering from the devastating Labor Day weekend wildfire, is in second place in a national competition for a $100,000 grant sponsored by Coca-Cola. So far, the park has received 2,756,829 votes.
If Bastrop State Park receives the most votes in this third annual “America Is Your Park” competition, the $100,000 award is going to be used to keep American YouthWorks members who are currently working at the park to advance the recovery of damaged infrastructure and forest landscape.
To vote and help Bastrop State Park earn this grant, anyone can check in on Foursquare and each check-in will count as 100 points, or to the voting area created on Facebook, which will count each vote as one point for this contest.
There is no limit to how many times someone can vote. The winner will be announced June 20.
