Pullman supporters seek your vote(s) for $250k in Vote Your Park grant program
Created by American Express and the National Trust for Historic Preservation, the Partners in Preservation campaign has committed $16 Million in support of historic places across the country. Partners in Preservation seeks to increase public awareness about the importance of historic preservation, while conserving America’s historic and cultural treasures. The program also hopes to inspire long-term support from local citizens for historic places at the heart of their communities.
The 2016 Partners in Preservation: National Parks campaign will award $2 million in grants to historic sites in need of preservation within national park units, as decided by popular vote. The sites with the most votes at the end of the voting period will be awarded grants for historic restoration projects.
This year, National Geographic, a partner with strong ties to U.S. National Parks as well as historic preservation, has joined forces with the program, promoting Partners in Preservation: National Parks across its website and social channels.
The public can get involved by voting once a day for up to five parks through July 5 at VoteYourPark.org, where they can also enter a sweepstakes for a chance to win a trip to Yellowstone National Park sponsored by National Geographic. In addition, they can show their support by using #VoteYourPark and tagging @savingplaces on Instagram and Twitter posts. Vote here,
