Final voting begins for Nevada tourism treasures
CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) -- The final round of voting is underway for Nevada's tourism treasures.
The "Discover Your Nevada" campaign began July 3, with people nominating their favorite Nevada attractions. Contenders have been whittled down to two in each of six tourism territories.
A final round of online voting began Monday and runs through Aug. 2.
The campaign sponsored by the Nevada Commission on Tourism is designed to educate Nevadans about places to see in their own state and encourage them to get out and explore what the Silver State has to offer.
Each "treasure" will receive a commemorative plaque and be featured in future tourism promotions.
This is the second year the commission has sponsored the campaign.
