#SuperParkSelfie Photo Contest


Show Us Your #SuperParkSelfie

Park and Rec Month Logo 290This July, we want you to discover your super powers at your local parks and rec! To see just how SUPER you are, we are challenging you to take a #SuperParkSelfie every week this July. Head out to your nearest park or recreation center and show us how parks and rec super power your life. 
Each week has a different selfie theme. You’ll be able to submit your selfie via this page, Facebook or by sharing the photo on Twitter and Instagram with #SuperParkSelfie and #SuperJuly. 
We’ll be awarding a $500 Amazon gift card weekly starting on July 11. Submit your selfies following these weekly themes to win!


  • July 4-10: Selfie with nature!
  • July 11-17: Selfie doing something healthy!
  • July 18-24: Selfie with your friends and community!
  • July 25-31: Selfie showing your superhero side!

How to Enter:

  1. Take a selfie in your local or park or recreation area—make sure it follows the weekly theme. 
  2. Submit it via this page, Facebook, or by uploading to Twitter or Instagram with #SuperParkSelfie and #SuperJuly.  
  3. Winners will be randomly selected and notified 7/11, 7/18, 7/25 and 8/1. NRPA will reach out to award the prize.
IMPORTANT CONTEST UPDATE: It was brought to our attention that online contest scammers were using multiple Facebook accounts and a network of other scammers to skew the votes in their favor. To address this issue, starting with the second week of the contest (July 11-17 with winners being announced July 18), we are changing the nature of this contest from a “win by majority vote” to a “win by random selection” contest. We hope this allows more fairness in the contest moving forward. The contest scammers have been disqualified from the contest overall. Additionally, to respect the work that entrants did to secure votes for the first week of the contest, we are still awarding the prize to the photo with the most votes that both matches the theme and is not a suspected scammer. Thank you for participating in Park and Recreation Month and the #SuperParkSelfie contest! If you have any questions, please reach out to Roxanne Sutton
