FALL DEADLINE: The Mahoning County Convention and Visitors Bureau’s Snapshots of Youngstown Fall 2020 promotion deadline is Saturday.

The goal of the interactive campaign is to invite the public to support local small businesses in Mahoning County during the pandemic, then share their experiences via photos. Participants are invited to give local businesses a “virtual high five” by patronizing them and documenting their visit.

There are seven different categories with suggestions on ways to support local businesses. Those who complete five of the seven categories — the virtual high five — and share their photos may enter for a chance to win one of 20 $25 gift cards to local Mahoning County businesses.

Rules of the contest and additional information, including how to upload photos and entry form, can be found at www.youngstownlive.com/snapshotsofyoungstown.
