Wake County Parks is hosting its first Instagram photo contest through July to celebrate National Parks and Recreation Month. To enter, participants should follow Wake County Parks on Instagram at @WakeGovParks and upload a picture that shows what they enjoy most about Wake County parks. Photographs should be tagged using the hashtag #OurWakeCountyParks and a hashtag of the park pictured.

Participants are encouraged to be creative with their submissions. Entries to the #OurWakeCountyParks contest can include:

• Photographs of nature
• Park activities and events
• Historic sites
• Recreation at parks

Prizes will be awarded to the three winning entrants, and some submissions will be featured in Wake County Parks’ brochures and posters. To enter, submit a photograph by Sunday, July 27.
