NJTV ANNOUNCES 2ND ANNUAL TOURISM TOURNAMENT ON FACEBOOK BEGINNING JULY 8, EXTENDED THROUGH AUGUST 14

This year’s Tournament focuses on New Jersey’s historic sites; winner to be profiled in upcoming In Your Neighborhood special

UPDATED August 7, 2019 – NEWARK, NJ – NJTV, New Jersey’s public television network, announced it will launch its 2nd Annual Tourism Tournament competition on Facebook on Monday, July 8th. Consider it the World Cup of fun places to go in New Jersey!

The Tournament is an extension of NJTV’s upcoming In Your Neighborhood: History broadcast special from Cape May, which will explore some of the Garden State’s most amazing historic sites.

NJTV’s Tourism Tournament will kick-off Monday, July 8 and run through a newly extended date of  Wednesday, August 14 until a champion is announced. Every day, one poll will be posted on NJTV’s Facebook page pitting two historic New Jersey venues against each other for 24 hours. Selected sites are encouraged to invite their customers, fans and friends to vote for them.

“The Tourism Tournament is back this year by popular demand and we’re excited to host it,” said NJTV General Manager John Servidio.  “It affords us the opportunity to spotlight some of New Jersey’s most interesting places, engage with our audience in an entertaining way and promote content across multiple platforms.”

The bracket is currently posted on the NJTV Facebook page and will be updated at the end of each round and in the cover image of the NJTV Facebook page. All voting will take place on Facebook! If an organization has a Facebook page, they will be tagged the day of their head-to-head competition so they can spread the word to their fans and followers.

The winning location at the conclusion of the Tourism Tournament will receive a profile on the In Your Neighborhood: History special, slated to air in August.
