THE MOUNT WASHINGTON VALLEY CHAMBER OF COMMERCE SAYS MOUNT WASHINGTON IS THE ONLY LOCATION IN NEW HAMPSHIRE THAT’S BEEN NOMINATED FOR AN “8TH WONDER OF THE WORLD CONTEST” SPONSORED BY A POPULAR TRAVEL WEBSITE.

CHAMBER MEMBERSHIP SERVICES MANAGER MELODY NESTER SAYS www.virtualtourist.com IS SPONSORING A CONTEST TO GIVE THE TITLE TO ONE AMAZING SPOT ON THE GLOBE, AND MOUNT WASHINGTON HAS BEEN AMONG THE TOP 50 VOTE-GETTERS.

NESTER SAYS THE PUBLICITY GENERATED BY THE CONTEST WILL BE GOOD FOR BUSINESSES IN THE VALLEY, AS IT WILL ATTRACT NATIONAL MEDIA COVERAGE.

SHE ENCOURAGES VISITORS AND RESIDENTS TO VOTE EACH DAY UNTIL SEP. 30, 2013.

JUST SCROLL DOWN ON THE HOME PAGE AND CLICK ON THE 8TH WONDER CONTEST. YOU’LL FIND MOUNT WASHINGTON LISTED IN ALPHABETICAL ORDER – OR YOU CAN GO RIGHT TO IT BY ENTERING THE WORD “HAMPSHIRE” IN THE SEARCH COLUMN.

VALLEY BUSINESSES ARE ENCOURAGED TO POST A LINK TO THE VIRTUAL TOURIST WEBSITE THROUGH THEIR SOCIAL MEDIA SITES – AND TO URGE OTHERS TO VOTE.
