Want to Brag About Texas? Now is Your Chance ... Tell Us What 'Texas Is …' to You!

My travels took me to Lubbock Tuesday where I proudly announced the "Texas Is…" amateur video competition to boost tourism in Texas. The announcement coincides with Texas Travel and Tourism Week, May 8-16. The contest invites all Texans to submit a one-minute video clip telling travelers and tourists why Texas is so near and dear to our hearts.

From our scenic beauty and wide-open spaces to cultural traditions and deep-rooted Texas pride, the Lone Star State gives us plenty to brag about. Whether your next getaway takes you to a Texas winery, beach, nature trail or backyard barbecue, capture it on film, digital recorder or cell phone, and tell us what Texas means to you.

If your video submission is chosen as a winner, your clip may be used in nationwide marketing materials, social media sites and on our website to promote Texas tourism.
