Summer is a great time to visit New Mexico's outstanding State Parks, Historic Sites and National Parks and Monuments. Beginning this June, the New Mexico Tourism Department is teaming up with New Mexico State Parks and the New Mexico Department of Cultural Affairs for the Find Your New Mexico True Park video contest. This contest is designed to bring the National Park Service's centennial celebration promotion, Find Your Park, to a state level and to inspire instate travel. New Mexicans will be encouraged to visit one of the 35 state parks, 7 historic sites, or 17 national parks and monuments within the Land of Enchantment. By simply submitting a quick video about what makes that spot their New Mexico True park, they'll be eligible to win incredible prizes. The more parks and sites they visit, the more chances they'll have to win!

How can your business or community benefit from the Find Your New Mexico True Park promotion?

Industry partners have the opportunity to participate by donating a prize that will be used for one of the top videos. Businesses that donate prizes (like an overnight stay for a family of four, or a four pack of tickets to a New Mexico activity or attraction) will receive a promotional mention and a link on the landing page for the video contest.

Additionally, your business or community can benefit by accessing the video content created by the contest. Each of the videos will populate an online New Mexico map, creating easily shareable content for your website and social media channels.

To participate as a prize sponsor please contact Shelley Thompson by May 15th at or mail the certificates directly to Shelley at:
