Enter the #AlmostHeaven Challenge

Show off the best of Greater Morgantown for your chance to win


Hey, Greater Morgantown! West Virginia’s 154th birthday is coming up on June 20th and you’re invited to celebrate with us!

The West Virginia Division of Tourism and Greater Morgantown Convention and Visitor Bureau are highlighting what makes West Virginia special on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter from now until West Virginia’s birthday on June 20th.

We are asking for your help by posting your favorite photos from the Greater Morgantown area. Post your selfie with friends, family or pets in front of Morgantown, W.Va. icons, landmarks, historical sites, artwork, parks . . . show off your “Almost Heaven” – Mountaineer Style! In fact, share as many photos as you want, but make sure to tag each one with the hashtags #AlmostHeaven and #TourMorgantown.

Contest Rules and Prizes

The West Virginia Division of Tourism will be selecting two prize winners who post with the hashtag #AlmostHeaven everyday through June 20th. Winners will receive vacation getaways to a destination in the state. The package for Greater Morgantown will include:

  • 1 night’s stay at the Courtyard Marriott (across from the Mon. Co. Ballpark)
  • 4 tickets to a WV Black Bears baseball game
  • $154 (since it’s WV’s 154th birthday) in local restaurant coupons to enjoy during your stay
