Instagram Contest Launched Encouraging Students to Experience St. Lawrence County
 
 – The ‘St. Lawrence County Student Experience Contest’ begins October 4th, inviting students at the County’s five colleges to share their experiences exploring in St. Lawrence County, from the St. Lawrence River to the foothills of the Adirondacks. The contest is open from October 4 – November 10, 2017. Students (must be 18 years of age or older)  must follow St. Lawrence County Chamber on Instagram and use the tag @VisitSTLC in their Instagram post (or send the photo over Direct Message through Instagram). Entrants can enter as many photos as they would like during the Contest Period. Students will have a chance to win a $75 gift certificate to local businesses. One winner from each St. Lawrence County college will be chosen, and the winning images will be featured on the @VisitSTLC Instagram page.
 
The contest is sponsored by the St. Lawrence County Chamber of Commerce as part of the launch of the new destination brand. Administered by Trampoline Design, the contest is designed to increase awareness of the County by students who make this area home for two to four years, or more. The contest also directs students to the newly launched Instagram @VisitSTLC where anyone can share and view the beauty and unique discoveries in St. Lawrence County.
 
All entries received via the St. Lawrence County Instagram by midnight on November 10, 2017 will be considered valid entries for this contest.
