QUINTE WEST – Bay of Quinte Tourism [2] started the its own tourism challenge #MyCommunityMyCanada [3] on Monday at Quinte West council.

The initiative wants people to share, in video format, their favourite places in Quinte West, said Nick Odgen, a Loyalist College student, who is one of the organizers of the challenge.

It’s larger goal is to highlight the best spots in Quinte West to visit to a larger audience.

People can submit their videos through the hashtag #MyCommunityMyCanada [3], by email or by dropping off a USB at city hall. Bay of Quinte Tourism will be accepting videos until Dec. 1, he said.

Videos submitted by July 1 may be chosen to be part of a compilation video which will be shown at the Canada Day celebrations [4] at Centennial Park, Ogden said.

Bay of Quinte Tourism will also be running a poster contest in partnership with the video challenge. There are three categories for children in school: JK-3, grades 4-8 and grades 9-12. Adults are able to participate as well in their own group (18+).
