State-wide “Crushing on Colorado” Campaign for Valentine’s Day
Movement Celebrates Love of Colorado People, Places and Objects
DENVER — February 13, 2014 — Downtown Colorado, Inc. (DCI), a nonprofit membership organization committed to building better communities through education and technical assistance, is excited to invite Coloradans to participate in Crushing on Colorado, a movement to celebrate the people, places and objects that make Colorado a wonderful place to live.
DCI is asking individuals to share their love for our state by snapping photos of them “crushing” on their favorite Colorado institution. Hug or kiss your favorite Colorado building, business, monument, natural resource, artwork, or person and snap a photo to upload to the Crushing on Colorado photo contest on DCI’s Facebook page. Participants should include a caption about the object of their affection as well as the hashtag, #crushingoncolo. The photo that receives the most votes by Friday, March 14, at 5pm will receive a $100 cash prize.
DCI is a statewide organization that strengthens communities across Colorado by supporting local governments and districts in their efforts to support small businesses and grow a sustainable local economy.
“We work with communities across the state regularly, so we know that Coloradans are passionate about our state,” said Katherine Correll, DCI Executive Director.
“The last year was especially difficult for so many of our communities–the flooding is just one example. We wanted to give them the opportunity to celebrate the people and places they love that are also so uniquely Colorado. We hope that this movement will gain momentum and people will continue to share why they are crushing on Colorado.”
Individuals are not limited to a single photo submission. All quality photos will be featured in a final montage that will be unveiled on Facebook and at a DCI event. Submitted photos may be utilized in additional Colorado promotions. Photo contest winner will be required to email photo to DCI directly to receive prize.
