Living Outside of Ordinary: National Tourism and Travel Challenge

May 6, 2019

NTTW Social Media Challenge Edition  

To celebrate National Tourism and Travel Week, we’re mixing things up this week with a social media challenge! Each day, participate by sharing a photo or story online, being sure to tag us and the hashtag #nttw19. Between hometown pride and keeping the entire country connected, this year’s theme hits the nail on the head: Travel Matters! Each day is themed around a reason why Travel Matters, so follow along with us all week for a chance to win an #OutsideofOrdinary t-shirt!

Monday, May 6 – Travel Matters to New Experiences: go somewhere you’ve seen on social media, but never been to in person, and take a picture or selfie!

Tuesday, May 7 – Travel Matters to Our Jobs: shout-out your favorite local business and why you love going there!

Wednesday, May 8 – Travel Matters to Keeping America Connected: tag someone out of state (or country) in a photo of a travel-worthy attraction in the greater Champaign County area! 

Thursday, May 9 – Travel Matters to Health: vacations are more than a luxury, they’re necessary! Tag us in a photo of somewhere you’d like to travel!

Friday – May 10 – Travel Matters to Hometown Pride: what place in our community feels like home to you? Share a photo of your home away from home in the greater Champaign County area!

Saturday, May 11 – Travel Matters to Families: family can be a traditional group, you and a four-legged companion, or a small circle of friends you could not live without! Share a story and photo of a trip, big or small, that has shaped your family!

Sunday, May 12 – Travel Matters to You: To end off the week, share your thoughts on the role travel plays in your life, and be sure to tag us so we can hear why you think Travel Matters!
