Tourism contest has close to 500 hashtags

Weyburn Tourism’s “Be A Tourist in your own Hometown” officially wrapped up, as the last day for entries was on August 31.
“We are happy to say that our campaign was a huge success,” said Weyburn Tourism’s Executive Director, Twila Walkeden. “We reached close to 500 hashtags on Facebook and Instagram. This initiative encouraged our residents to explore and document the vast options of summer activities available in our community.”
As residents experienced events over the summer, they were able to act as ambassadors and promoters for family and friends who came to stay and play.
“If residents of Weyburn and area love our community, visitors will automatically love it as well,” said Walkeden.
“We really want to thank all the residents that did partake in our summer campaign. We really enjoyed viewing all the photos that were attached to the hashtags #ThisIsWeyburn and #WeyburnTourism,” she said.
Weyburn Tourism announced that Nadine Adderley is the winner of the contest.
“Nadine and her girls went above and beyond in exploring Weyburn from head to toe,” said Walkeden. She has won an evening out in Weyburn, two tickets to Jann Arden on November 6, and supper at Boston Pizza.
There were also two city councillors who competed throughout the summer at #JeffVSJeff. The results are in and Coun. Jeff Richards won. Coun. Jeff Chessall will be donating $100 to the Therapeutic Animal Park.
Although summer is ending, along with the campaign, residents are urged to keep the hashtags rolling. “We want to show off Weyburn, and our residents are our greatest ambassadors,” said Walkeden.
