Worcester County Tourism wants to know what you consider to be the perfect day-trip to Worcester County, Maryland. Do you search for ponies at Assateague Island, shop ‘til you drop in Berlin, explore the Old-Growth Forest of Snow Hill, take a River Cruise down the Pocomoke, or take in the beaches, boardwalk and entertainment in Ocean City? Tell us about it and you could be a winner in the Beach and Beyond “Best Summer Day-Trip Contest.”
“We are looking for your perfect Worcester day trip,” Worcester County Tourism Director Lisa Challenger said. “Anything goes, so get creative, wacky, frugal, decadent, fun. You’ve got the experience, and we want it.”
Here’s what you need to know to take part in the contest. The day-trip must take place entirely in Worcester County. The day-trip must be able to be completed in 12 hours or less. Tell us about your day-trip in 300 words or less. That’s it!
Submissions are due by noon on July 15. One entry per person. Once you click submit, no other changes can be made. On Monday, July 18, the top 12 submissions – chosen for their awesomeness, feasibility and uniqueness – will be published to be voted on by the public through noon on Wednesday, July 27.
Three winners will be announced on Thursday, July 28. First place will receive a GoPro HERO Session. Second place will receive a Fitbit Charge HR Wireless Activity Wristband. Third place will receive a FujiFilm Instax Mini 8 with strap and batteries.
