HELP THE PALM BEACH ZOO WIN A PRESTIGIOUS AWARD AND A $25,000 GRANT!
You can only vote once from any computer -- multiple votes from the same computer will not help! It is permissible to copy this information into an email and send it out to all your friends, co-workers and acquaintances. The winning grant monies would certainly help the Zoo toward returning to its original pre-hurricane status! Go to the following link and cast your vote now! And remember to check back on Nov. 1st to see if we’ve made it into the "final five" and vote for us again! (Don’t worry, we’ll prompt you to remember!) We sincerely appreciate and thank you for your support.
Microsoft® Game Studios will introduce a sequel to the fabulously popular Windows® game Zoo Tycoon just in time for the holidays! To build up excitement for the release of Zoo Tycoon 2, Microsoft Game Studios has announced 15 semi-finalists in the America’s Favorite Zoo contest. The Palm Beach Zoo has been selected as one of the semi-finalists! The sponsor originally invited 50 national zoos to participate in this competition. The winning zoo will not only boast the title of America’s Favorite Zoo, but will also earn a $25,000 grant from Microsoft to assist in the upkeep and maintenance of the zoo and its inhabitants.
Finalists were selected based on their scores in seven different categories including habitats/exhibits, educational programs, awards and recognition, staff highlights, community events/service, activities and attractions, and organizational partnerships and affiliations.
The public is now invited, from Oct. 4 to 29, to choose the top five zoos for the final round. The top five finalists will be chosen exclusively through online voting, and their names will be announced and posted on the official Zoo Tycoon web site on Nov. 1st. Online voting will resume from Nov. 1 to 12 and the public will once again be invited to select America’s Favorite Zoo. The winner will be announced Nov. 16, 2004.
