With “My Bucks Is…”Video Contest

(Bucks County, PA) What is your Bucks County?  Bucks County means something to everyone, whether you live here or you are just visiting, and now you can share it!

Have you ever thought about making a video to share the story of what is your Bucks County? Now is your chance. Oh, you don’t feel comfortable recording yourself or getting creative, well then, what if I told you that the Bucks County Conference & Visitors Bureau has three fantastic getaway prizes that each includes overnight accommodations and fun activities from a shopping spree to a night out on the town to a glider ride high in the sky.  Oh, you think you are interested after-all? Great to hear!!

The submissions will be judged primarily on originality and creativity on the theme of My Bucks Is… It is as easy as shooting your family’s home video. For example, if your Bucks County is a “Romantic Escape” at our wineries; take a short video of you and your loved one at one of our local wineries and explain why “My Bucks Is…a Romantic Escape!”

Requirements:
* The videos must be posted toYoutube.com where you can then submit the link utilizing our online submission form
* The videos must be short, 1 minute or less
* Must include the phrase “My Bucks Is …. “  So if your Bucks County is a Bicycle Ride along the Delaware Canal or a Balloon Ride or a trip to Sesame Place or a night out in New Hope, we want to hear it!
* Be creative but keep it clean!

Let’s have some fun and share the passion! Don’t know anything about uploading a video to YouTube?  Ask your kids, grandkids, friends or neighbors!
