 Running now through June 15, the Share Your Washington promotion encourages Washingtonians to invite their loved ones to visit them, while also entering the inviter into a sweepstakes for the chance to win a significant grand prize from Alaska Airlines.

Entering is simple - visit www.ShareYourWashington.com to send electronic postcards to friends, which automatically enters the sender into the sweepstakes. There is no limit to the number of times residents can enter - the more friends and family they invite, the more chances they have to win the grand prize from Alaska Airlines! The one grand prize package consists of two components:

 1.      Unlimited air travel within Washington State on Alaska Airlines/Horizon Air numbered flights for the winner and companion for a whole year, beginning July 1, 2011, and ending on June 30, 2012.

2.      Two round trip coach tickets for two people anywhere Alaska Airlines flies. The round trip travel vouchers may be redeemed between July 1, 2011, and June 30, 2012. Travel must be completed by June 30, 2012.

Share Your Washington is also great for invited friends and family, as each electronic postcard includes special deals and discounts for the visitor, such as shopping discounts or special rates at local hotels. In addition to the electronic postcards and sweepstakes, the Share Your Washington website features a two-minute video "PSA" that showcases how tourism matters to local and state economies.

If you don't live in Washington State you can still enter to win and receive special deals from all over the state.
