Celebrate Park and Recreation Month with “Share Your Rec Life” Instagram Contest July 1-20
In honor of Park and Recreation Month, from Wednesday, July 1 to Monday, July 20, the City of Evanston’s Parks, Recreation and Community Services Department invites all Evanstonians to participate in the “Share Your Rec Life” Instagram Contest! Instagram users will have a chance to show off their favorite recreational activity for a chance to win two free beach tokens for the 2016 season and a free pass to enjoy a Parks & Recreation activity or event, such as personal training, the Zombie Scramble, a Nutcracker on Ice performance, and more.
In order to take part in the contest, participants must have a public Instagram profile and adhere to the following rules:
- Follow @ParkRecEvanston on Instagram
- Snap a picture of yourself, friends or family participating in a recreational activity and use #EvanstonRecLife
- Tag the beach, park, or any other Evanston location in the photo.
Please note that all recreational activities must take place in Evanston. Activities include, but are not limited to, playing sports, biking, exercise, kayaking, ice skating, swimming and fishing. Photo submissions will be judged based on creativity. Following the close of the contest, judges will select the top three photos for a community-wide vote to determine the winner.
The contest is only open to Evanston residents. Proof of residency will be required upon prize pickup. For more information, contact Recreation Program Manager Ray Doerner at 847-448-8682 or call/text 847-448-4311. For convenience, residents in Evanston can simply dial 3-1-1.
