Tri-State Drive-Ins are now on the list for a national contest- Honda's Project Drive-In.

Some winners have already been announced, but voting has reopened to pick even more winners. That means a couple Tri-State drive-ins are still in the running.

Just a few weeks ago, officials with the Holiday Drive-In in Spencer County told 14 News that they do have plans to update all five screens to digital, after concerns the change would be too costly for the few remaining drive-in theatres across the country.

General Manager Georgia Decker says Holiday Drive-In entered the contest in hopes of winning a free digital projector. The drive-in needs a total of five digital projectors to make its conversion.

Holiday Drive-In isn't in danger of going dark, but Decker says the free projector would save the drive-in a lot of money.

"Once a day by text. Once a day online. So, each person can vote twice. Every cell phone is a vote, and every computer is a vote," Decker told 14 News.

Text 'Vote71' to 444999 to vote on your cell phone. To vote online, head to this website. Decker says you can vote twice a day.

The Tri-City Drive-In in Ohio County is also in the contest.
