An Indiana family has won a Honda Civic Hybrid for its use of the State’s “Natural Treasures.”
During this past summer, the Nature Conservancy and Honda teamed up for a sweepstakes that challenged locals to explore natural sites.
Targeted at residents in Honda manufacturing states of Alabama, Indiana and Ohio, Honda said the “Natural Treasures” partnership program highlighted beloved natural areas.
The grand prize was a new 2014 Honda Civic Hybrid.
To enter the contest, Hoosiers could visit one or more of nine Indiana natural areas and record their visit by taking a photo of themselves, then upload the photo to the Natural Treasures website.
It has been revealed that more than 1,300 enthusiasts submitted photo entries in the sweepstakes, which ran from August 1 through September 30. Honda added many visited all of the specially selected sites and uploaded photo self-portraits from each site.
Julie Norlin of Greencastle, Indiana, was randomly selected to win the grand prize, a 2014 Honda Civic Hybrid. Norlin and her family spent a day hiking at Big Walnut Nature Preserve in Putnam County.
“Honda is very happy to present the grand prize for this sweepstakes, a very fuel-efficient and enjoyable Honda Civic vehicle, to Julie,” said Bob Nelson, President, Honda Manufacturing of Indiana, LLC. “Our hope is that her enthusiasm spurs others to visit these natural areas which enhance our quality of life.”
Norlin was awarded her new Honda Civic Hybrid at Honda’s Indiana manufacturing facility in Greensburg on Tuesday, November 18.
“Natural Treasures was a great way to introduce Indiana’s amazing natural areas to new audiences,” said Mary McConnell, state director for The Nature Conservancy’s Indiana Chapter. “The goal of the contest was to get folks outside and enjoy nature, and it succeeded.”
