Jackson in running for small town contest
Six Wyoming communities are in the running in Rand McNally's 2013 Best of the Road contest.
Centennial, Cody, Jackson, Laramie, Lovell and Sheridan have been nominated in the travel publication's 2013 Best Small Towns contest.
People can cast their votes for the community of their choice among six categories: most beautiful, most fun, friendliest, most patriotic, best food and best for geocaching.
The contest began on July 1 and voting concludes Sept. 3, 2013. Winners will be announced in October.
The winning towns will receive a feature in the 2015 Rand McNally Road Atlas and a free custom iPhone app and online travel guide promoting the town as a top destination. The contest is only for American towns with a population below 150,000.
