PINE KNOLL SHORES - The Pine Knoll Shores Aquarium has been nominated as one of the 10 best aquariums in north America.
USA Today has launched a national poll asking for people to vote for the best aquarium on the continent.
The Pine Knoll Shores Aquarium is up against competition from all across the country, including the National Aquarium in Baltimore and the Florida Aquarium in Tampa.
Stuart May, the director of operations at the aquarium, said even to be nominated is an honor.
"Being named the best, especially when you consider the competition that we have around the country, would just be about the best thing that you could imagine,” said May. “And it would help the town of Pine Knoll Shores immensely, but it would be really great for us."
You can vote for the Pine Knoll Shores Aquarium here.
The winner will be announced May 4.
