Share your Washington!

If you could do something that takes only 30 seconds of your time to help create 20,000 jobs in Washington and gives you a chance to win a couple of free plane tickets, would you do it?

All it takes is inviting a friend to visit Washington state. Go to the Washington Tourism Office to check out instructions on how to send an electronic postcard invitation to at least one person.

That’s it.

And there is no limit to the number of times you can enter as long as each invite goes to a valid e-mail address.

Tourism is Washington state’s fourth largest industry, it employs 143,800 people, creates $4.3 billion in earnings, generates total direct visitor spending of $15.2 billion and generates $1 billion in state and local tax revenue.

Those are all very good reasons to Share your Washington!
