It’s going to be an exciting summer at Jellystone Parks! In addition to launching our new Club Yogi Rewards program, it’s our 40th Anniversary. The first Jellystone Park opened in 1969 in Sturgeon Bay, WI and is still part of the franchise. (Read more about how the Jellystone Park concept began.)
And to honor our anniversary, the franchise is hosting a video contest with a grand prize of $10,000 cash! Weekly prizes will also be awarded.
The contest theme is “Show us how you have fun at Jellystone Park!” Maybe you’re palling around with Yogi Bear, making a splash in our water attractions or singing off-key during karaoke. Whatever your tradition or favorite activity…we want to see how you and your family and friends enjoy a Jellystone Park vacation. Just record your video (suggested time is 30-90 seconds – limit of 3 minutes) and upload it at www.jellystonefun.com beginning May 23. If you don’t have a video recorder, you can also create a slideshow of still photos. Please note, the contest website at www.jellystonefun.com will not be live until May 23.
The five videos with the most votes over the summer are entered into the finals. A grand prize winner will be announced in October and receive $10,000 cash!
In addition, one video will be randomly selected each week to receive a Yogi Bear merchandise prize package.
So put on your director’s cap and get creative! Videos can be uploaded from May 23 thru September 8, 2009. Be sure to email all your friends and family and tell them to vote for your video at jellystonefun.com.
If you don’t want to post a video, but want to vote for your favorite – just visit www.jellystonefun.com.
Good luck and have a great summer at Yogi Bear’s Jellystone Parks!
