The Maywood Park District is trying to receive enough nominations to acquire a $20,000 grant to improve local parks, according to a press release issued by the district last month.
For the duration of April, which is Earth Month, residents will be able to nominate Maywood for the grant by going to NRPA.org/BeInspired (click here).
By the end of Earth Month, the city that receives the most nominations will receive the funding. Everyone who nominates a city will automatically be entered into a drawing for an outdoor-capable tablet.
“Not only do our local parks make Maywood a better place to live, they also help in shaping many of our lives,” Noted park district officials in the March 29 release.
“This Earth Month, help the Maywood Park District show what Maywood’s parks mean to our community by nominating our great city. Encourage your friends to nominate Maywood by taking a selfie in your favorite park and using the hashtags #MeetMeAtThePark, #Parkies and #BeInspired.”
The $20,000 grant funding, which is in its third year, is a result of a collaboration between the National Recreation and Park Association, and the Walt Disney Company. VFP
