Trying Something New for 2022? Share Your Snapshot of Youngstown

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio — The Mahoning County Convention & Visitors Bureau/Youngstown Live is giving residents a chance to show off how they’re starting 2022 on the right foot with its Snapshots of Youngstown – Winter 2022 campaign.

Now through Feb. 21, residents can upload one photo via the bureau’s website of their winter activities. Participants are eligible for a $50 local gift card, according to a press release.

“With a new year comes the chance for a new start, and there are plenty of opportunities to try new things throughout Youngstown and Mahoning County,” said Linda Macala, executive director of Youngstown Live. “Take a hike through the snow, check out a museum, or try healthy cuisine at a local restaurant. If you need some inspiration for your entry, we will be posting a series of blogs with suggestions.”

Multiple entries are permitted for more chances to win, but participants can only win one gift card. Two winners will be drawn at random from all of the entries each week, beginning this week. Winners will be notified on Tuesday. Cards will be to places in the Youngstown area.

Photos must be taken in Mahoning County. Photos will be used in future marketing efforts to promote visitation to Youngstown and Mahoning County, according to the release.
