#SupportYourParks For A Chance To Win A Winnebago
For the second year in a row, Winnebago Industries is partnering with the National Park Foundation (NPF) in an effort to strengthen the public’s connections to national parks and offer more learning and career opportunities for future generations. The campaign, dubbed #SupportYourParks, is a continuation of last year’s campaign “On the Road Again.”
“#SupportYourParks aims to ignite an appreciation for the national parks’ beauty and rich history, instill a commitment to protecting them for future generations and inspire responsible travel to these treasured places,” Winnebago stated. “At the heart of this effort is a drive to support NPF’s work and mission.”
The National Park Foundation is the official charity of the National Park Service. The organization is able to carry out wildlife and land conservation projects, educational programs, and public awareness events through private support and strategic partnerships like this collaboration with Winnebago Industries.
As part of the initiative, the leading U.S. manufacturer of outdoor lifestyle products is raffling off 100 America the Beautiful annual passes through August 31, 2021, and giving away a Winnebago Class A Motorhome. The annual passes are valid between September 2021 through September 2022, and the grand prize is available for the 2022 calendar year.
Winnebago created a video (shown below) for the #SupportYourParks campaign on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter which features musician Chris Koza singing a version of Willie Nelson’s “On the Road Again.”
How to be a part of the #SupportYourParks Campaign
Folks are encouraged to follow Winnebago on at least one of the three social media platforms, like the #SupportYourParks post, and tag a friend to be automatically entered in the giveaway. Winnebago, in turn, will match every share of the video via these sites and YouTube until August 31 by donating $1 per share to the National Park Foundation, up to $25,000.
These funds will help support the NPF’s service corps program, which offers participants ages 18-35 hands-on work experience in national parks. Students learn and practice construction and preservation techniques and utilize these skills to make improvements in the parks. Winnebago has also supported NPF’s Open OutDoors for Kids program, which provides students various learning opportunities through field trips and educational resources.
“The #SupportYourParks campaign is a wonderful way to sing the parks’ praises for providing places for healing, reflection, and adventures for all during the pandemic and beyond,” said NPF Senior VP for Corporate Partnerships Stefanie Mathew. “We are excited to continue our work with Winnebago to create more opportunities for diverse leaders to experience careers in the outdoors through programs such as service corps.”

I support any/all legitimate efforts to save our national parks and forest, however if the Winnebago is of the same quality as the one we purchased, that experience is not worth winning.
Your headline is misleading. It’s a chance to win “3. You’ll also be entered to win the grand prize that includes an extraordinary experience in a Winnebago Class A motorhome.”, not win the RV.
As of June 2021, Winnebago has a combined (towables and motorized) order backlog of $3.7 BILLION and all they can donate is a measly $25K + some park passes!!!
What good does it do to sell 1,000’s of RV’s when available campsites are very difficult if not impossible to come by? It’s basic economics, when demand (RV’s) exceed supply (campsites), the government and recreational industry need to collaborate and solve this problem before it gets even more out of balance, and those that bought RV’s suddenly have buyer’s remorse and sales start to plummet. The National and State Parks need more campsites as do the privately-owned campsites.
If we look at history, the same thing occurred with the auto industry with the massive infrastructure project to build the interstate highway system in the 50’s. What good is a car if you have no roads to drive on?
Made famous by the 2009 documentary by Ken Burns and Dayton Duncan, the National Parks are America’s best idea. We need all the help we can get to preserve and enhance these magnificent experiences for current and future generations.
