Nominate Fairfax County to Receive a $20K Grant for Earth Month

The Fairfax County Park Authority and the Fairfax County Park Foundation invite you to vote for Fairfax County parks in the National Recreation and Park Association’s “Meet Me at the Park” Earth Month Campaign. The locale that receives the most nominations will receive a $20,000 grant to improve a local park.

For the fourth year in a row, the NRPA is collaborating with The Walt Disney Company — including Disney/ABC Television Group and ESPN — to help fund local park improvement projects across the country through the national “Meet Me at the Park” Earth Month campaign. The city that receives the most nominations during the month of April will receive a $20K grant to improve a local park. From April 1 to April 30, 2018, visit www.meetmeatthepark.org to nominate Fairfax, Va. At the end of April, the city with the most nominations will receive the $20K grant funding. Everyone who submits a nomination will be entered into a drawing for a GoPro Prize Pack.

“Fairfax County residents are passionate about their parks,” said Park Authority Executive Director Kirk Kincannon. “This contest gives them the opportunity to turn that passion into action and create something really special at one of Fairfax County’s 427 parks.”

Both promotions begin at 12 a.m. on April 1, 2018 and conclude at 11:59 p.m. on April 30, 2018. No purchase necessary to participate. For complete details and Official Rules for both promotions, visit www.meetmeatthepark.org
