EFFINGHAM, IL-(Effingham Radio)- The City of Effingham Convention & Visitors Bureau is looking forward to celebrating National Travel & Tourism Week May 6 – 12, 2018.
This week is about celebrating all that travel encompasses, including taking time off to make memories with family and friends.
This year, the U.S. Travel Association’s theme for National Travel & Tourism Week is “Then & Now.”
To celebrate, we are promoting a “Family Vacation: Then & Now” Photo Contest.
Do you have a classic vacation photo your family or friends take each year at the same place or with the same pose?
We’re looking for people to submit their “then & now” vacation photos as part of the contest for a chance to win a gift basket worth over $100.
Although we would love to see actual re-creations of photos in the same location, we’re open to creative solutions.
Maybe recreate that beach photo from the 1980s in front of Lake Sara’s beach or just pick one of Effingham’s attractions to re-create your favorite vacation photo with the same fun pose!
To enter the contest, share your photos on our Facebook page “Visit Effingham.”
You can start sharing those photos now.
You have until Friday, May 11, 2018 at noon to share the photos.
We will randomly draw a winner of the $100 gift basket on Friday, May 11th in the afternoon.
We encourage you to get creative and have fun!
This contest is all about celebrating family, friends and the importance of travel.
Be sure to post both the original photo and the updated re-creation in the same post.
These photos can be decades apart or only one year.
We encourage you to write a short description in the post so we have some background on the photos and your family.
Throughout National Travel & Tourism Week, we will also be celebrating in several different ways, including having giveaways at the Visitor Center and other prizes.
Be sure to check our Facebook page and website, www.VisitEffinghamIL.com for more information as the week nears.
If you have questions on the contest, feel free to contact us at 217.342.5305 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
