Washington, DC (PRWEB) November 02, 2011
Calling all aspiring writers and eco-travel enthusiasts: online eco-travel mecca, http://www.greenloons.com, is giving away a Kindle Fire just in time for the Holidays. To enter to win this green techie must-have, simply submit a story about your latest eco-travel experience or eco-travel tip to the Greenloons community forum and then spread the word to your friends and family through social media (no purchase necessary). The 5 entries that receive the highest number of Facebook “Like” votes by November 15, 2011 will then be judged by a panel of eco-conscious family vacation planners to determine the winner, who will be notified on Monday, December 5.
Entries will be judged by the degree to which they emphasize the true spirit of ecotourism, which is the discovery of a natural or wildlife habitat in a manner that maximizes local economic and social goals, and reduces the possibility of environmental degradation. It is about preserving ecosystems, educating visitors about conservation, empowering localities, operating sustainable tourist attractions and, most of all, having fun and unique family experiences. By submitting and promoting an eco-travel story or tip to the Greenloons travel writing contest, an applicant makes a powerful statement in support of keeping vacations as safe, responsible, and enriching to all parties involved.
All entrants must be 18 years or older and residents of the US. Submissions, which should be 75 words or longer and written in English, can be promoted from Saturday, October 15, 2011 at 12:00 a.m. (EST) through Tuesday, November 15, 2011 at 11:59 p.m. (EST). Entries are limited to one per person and it is necessary to be logged in to post an entry. Re-posting articles published on another site (i.e. Trazzler) is permitted so long as it is an eco-travel story and voting is open to all.
