Voting will soon conclude in the RBFF’s sweepstakes.

The Recreational Boating and Fishing Foundation is asking anglers and boaters to cast their vote in the 2015 America’s Top Family Fishing and Boating Spots Sweepstakes.

Voting will soon conclude in the RBFF’s sweepstakes, which is designed to increase awareness of the great family-friendly parks across the country, ultimately getting more families out on the water and enjoying fishing and boating.

For the 2015 sweepstakes, RBFF and its state agency partners pre-selected 276 family-friendly parks — local, state and federal — from across the United States. Consumers are being asked to vote on them now.

People who register for the sweepstakes can vote for as many as three of their favorite parks on the list per day. This year’s sweepstakes is also mobile-friendly. Each park on the list is characterized by its family amenities, location in relation to large metropolitan areas and the likeliness that visitors will catch a fish or enjoy a day on the water.

In its first two weeks the Sweepstakes received 31,847 entries and 6,352 email opt-ins.

Once voting concludes, the parks with the most votes will be named to the RBFF’s 2015 America’s Top 100 Family Fishing and Boating Spots. The top spots will benefit from increased visibility throughout the summer, especially during National Fishing and Boating Week, which runs from June 6-14.
