American Express EveryDay Park Moments

Have you been itching to visit the Grand Canyon or one of the other iconic national parks across the U.S.? If so, then you could win a trip on American Express with a selfie and a bit of luck if you enter their EveryDay Park Moments contest. The grand prize is three trips to Yosemite National Park, Grand Canyon National Park, and the National Mall and Memorial Parks in Washington, D.C.

To get started while you’re in a national park or even your local park with your family and/or friends snap a selfie, write a compelling caption and share it on the website they have set up. Winners can bring up to three family members or friends with them on their excursion. American Express is taking submissions from July 30 to August 31, 2015.

The contest is a way to bring awareness to national parks. “We want to celebrate the #EveryDayMoments that families and friends can share together at their parks this summer,” said Jed Scala, senior vice president of consumer lending at American Express. “This contest encourages people to visit the National Parks and allows them to document the natural beauty and rich history that surrounds them—oftentimes right in their own backyard.”

The winners go to…

Three vacation packages are up for grabs, including:

• Yosemite National Park – the trip includes round-trip airfare to Fresno, California, along with a three-night stay at Tenaya Lodge, an America the Beautiful Pass, a choice of two park activities and $1,000 in spending money.

• Grand Canyon National Park – the trip includes round-trip airfare to Phoenix, Arizona, and a three-night stay at The Grand Canyon Lodge. The winner also get an America the Beautiful Pass, and $2,000 in spending money.

• The National Mall and Memorial Parks of Washington, DC – this trip comes along with round-trip airfare to Washington D.C., a three-night stay at The Grand Hyatt, and $1,500 in spending money. The winner also gets a dinner cruise and a Monuments and Memorials half-day photo shoot.

Amex supports park volunteers

Last March American Express announced that they were donating a $5 million multi-year grant to the National Parks Foundation to help enhance volunteerism in national parks and museums. They are also partnering up with the foundation for their upcoming celebration of the National Park Service centennial, focused on bringing on a new generation of volunteers to the parks.
