Yakima joins new tourism campaign

Posted: Updated:

YAKIMA, Wash- You can now win free travel by helping promote tourism in your area.  Monday Yakima along with other cities around the state unveiled the new "Share Your Washington" tourism promotion.

Residents can go online (www.ShareYourWashington.com) and send post cards to people encouraging them to visit Washington.   This community based-tourism push launches about two months before the state loses it's tourism board to budget cuts.

"We're doing everything we can as a community as industry and as regions to help bring visitors to our sate and our communities", says Cooper.

For every postcard sent, you will be entered into a drawing to win prizes like Alaska Airlines plane tickets.

Promoters estimate that if every household in the state participates it could bring 20,000 new jobs to Washington.
