Who are the experts about destinations in your area? Who do you think a group travel planner would like to speak with about finding the area’s destination gems? Your residents, of course.

The Omaha Convention and Visitors Bureau (OCVB) is using area residents to market Omaha with a video contest. The “Welcome to the Weekend” campaign is an opportunity for Omaha visitors and residents to capture what they feel are the great things to do in Omaha. In addition, they have a chance to be featured in an upcoming “Visit Omaha” commercial. From June 7-July 31, entrants can submit videos of their fun-filled Omaha weekend moments online at

“Show us something new – off the beaten path places, shops, and restaurants that make the weekend uniquely Omaha,” said OCVB Executive Director Dana Markel. “We want to see this city’s attractions, events, and hidden gems through your eyes.”
During June and July, one grand prize winner each month will receive a two-night stay at an Omaha hotel, $100 restaurant gift card, and passes to Omaha attractions. Additionally each month, four second prize winners will receive passes to Omaha attractions. In August, a select number of videos will be chosen as “Welcome to the Weekend” commercials for the Visit Omaha campaign, to be aired regionally starting this fall.
