Vote for Rockport in Reader's Digest "We Hear You America"

Rockport residents and visitors are encouraged to “give out a shout” about our fantastic community as part of the Reader’s Digest “We Hear You America” program. 

The national publication is sponsoring an online sweepstakes that will award funds to cities and towns, which receive the most votes, and a prize for individuals entering the contest.

To participate, go to and type in 78382 where it says “Cheer Now! For Your Town”. 

A new page will open up that provides a number of options.  You may either place up to 10 votes by clicking on the cheer icon on the left hand side of the page OR writing a brief description about “What Makes Your Town the Best of America?”. 

As of noon on January 13, Rockport was listed as #1716. 

So vote now … and vote often.  The contest ends on February 7.
