West Virginia Week Challenge 2019

West Virginia Day is being celebrated next week, and Governor Jim Justice and state, the Tourism Commissioner Chelsea Ruby, are encouraging the West Virgin and those who love the state to celebrate social media tourism.

“It is time to celebrate America's best secret secret with seven days of West Virginia's Virginia-wall social media,” Ruby enthusiastically added.

“We have had a number of social campaigns over the last few years using the almost hashtagHeaven,” she said, and to encourage participation, the tourist office will bring activity passes and leave every day away.

Among the prizes will be a number of major holiday packages for people taking part in the campaign all week, Ruby said.

To participate, social media users are asked to continue the themes every day and post their photos and memories publicly on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram using #AlmostHeaven. The week's challenge is specific daily themes.

  • Friday, June 14: Remember #AlmostHeaven
  • Saturday, June 15: What is the best #AlmostHeaven scenic view.
  • Sun, June 16: Put a photo of your favorite season #AlmostHeaven.
  • Monday, June 17: Tell us the favorite #AlmostHeaven adventure.
  • Tuesday, June 18: Share your favorite place #AlmostHeaven to escape.
  • First, 19th June: Post the favorite #AlmostHeaven waterfall.
  • Thursday, June 20: Happy Birthday, West Virginia! Tag a friend you want to visit #AlmostHeaven.

Due to tourist attractions throughout the state, they gave holiday to participating people, and Ruby said.

West Virginia Day, a state holiday, celebrates the date in 1863 during the American Civil War when West Virginia from Virginia went back to the Union.

The holiday is an occasion to highlight the many attractions of the state, from scenic views to local brews, from water rapids to snow slopes.

The governor has long emphasized the value of West Virginia as a holiday destination.

“I have been saying for years that we have to tell our story,” the Judge said.

“We live in the most beautiful place in the world. Why in the world would you like to go anywhere else? We all have the right here, and we have to do a better job to tell people about everything amazing in West Virginia. ”

Industry tourism represents $ 4.3 billion in West Virginia, generating $ 519 million in state and local taxes and supporting over 45,000 hard-working Virgin Virgin positions.

Ruby said that this year's social challenge also includes a way for West Virginia businesses to join the celebrations.

Businesses can express their love with the state and local communities by participating in their official social channels and encouraging employees to participate.

Participating businesses will appear on the Tourism Office website and can register as official participants and download a toolkit at

To be eligible for the usual daily channels, individual participants must set their positions of challenge to the public and enter

Participants who post and submit online every seven days of the challenge will be entitled to win the great holiday prizes on West Virginia Day.
