Ohio Cities, One of the Oldest Regional Directories on the Internet, Today Launched 'Why I Love My Ohio City,' a New Ohio Tourism Contest for Ohioans Who Want to Boast About Their Ohio Communities, Including Their Hometown Holiday Memories in Cleveland, Columbus, Cincinnati and Other Cities; Qualify for Great Prizes Like an Ohio-Themed Gift Basket, Cedar Point and King's Island Passes and Boxes Stuffed With Nostalgic Candy

GARFIELD HEIGHTS, OH--(Marketwire - November 22, 2010) - Ohioans can pay tribute to their favorite cities and win great prizes this holiday season in the "Why I Love My Ohio City" contest at Ohio Cities.

Share what makes Ohio cities, towns and neighborhoods thrive -- the people, sights, food, histories, festivals, geography, Ohio attractions, schools and more. Or, detail some delightful memories of life in a hometown -- including wonderful holidays with friends and family.

Each entry, which must be between 200 and 500 words, will be posted on Ohio Cities, an Ohio-based Internet directory with links to Ohio tourism, business, community and Ohio travel web sites in Cleveland, Columbus, Cincinnati, Akron, Canton, Toledo, Dayton, Youngstown and other cities.

The contest is an opportunity for Ohioans to recognize their towns, including the quirky events, traditions and folklore that make them so notable.

"Why I Love My Ohio City" is not a writing competition. It's simply a good way to reflect community pride, which can include local heroes (popular and unsung) or how ordinary people did extraordinary things to triumph over tragedy.

When the contest ends January 31st, 2011, Ohio Cities will randomly select winners for prizes, including:

  • Passes to Cedar Point and King's Island Ohio attractions
  • Cinemark gift certificates
  • Boxes of nostalgic candy from Old Time Candy Company -- "Candy you ate as a kid"
  • Flowers from Alexander's Floral Designs
  • Gift basket with Ohio-themed products from The Flavor of Ohio
  • Gallery One "North Coast Lights" poster signed by Jim Ptacek

"We want to showcase Ohio cities, towns and villages -- whether some people recently moved here or have lived in Ohio all of their lives," said Mike Murray, founder of Ohio Cities (www.ohiocities.com).
