SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend

Lake Macbride State Park is eligible to receive $100,000 for beautification and enhancements through the America is Your Park program.

The program aims to motivate people to visit their favorite park — local, state, or national — and then use Facebook to vote for their particular choice.

The park that receives the most votes will be awarded a $100,000 grant sponsored by Coca-Cola. Second and third place will receive $50,000 and $25,000 grants, respectively.

Lake Macbride was in 12th place with approximately 28,600 votes as of Tuesday evening. Soudan Underground Mine State Park in Minnesota was in first place with 328,609 votes.

This is the second favorite park competition. People can vote an unlimited number of times between now and Sept. 6.
