There’s nothing quite like St. Louis. From local grub to games at Busch Stadium to picnics in the parks, St. Louis is chock-full of wonderful things to do in each of its unique neighborhoods. Starting today, St. Louis Civic Foundation and Ameren Missouri joined forces and want you to share your love of your St. Louis neighborhood in the “Lucky to Live Here” contest. Bringing community groups, bloggers, leaders and residents of St. Louis together to celebrate St. Louis neighborhoods, the contest aims to showcase the civic pride in our fair city.

Today through May 31, share a photo from a neighborhood on Twitter, Instagram or Facebook that shows why you feel lucky to live here and tag #LuckyToLiveHere and #ExploreStLouis. Each time you share a photo from a neighborhood, you are automatically entered to win a $1,000 Staycation package—a two-night stay, brunch, dinner and drinks and a $50 gift card in your favorite neighborhood. If that wasn’t enough, you’ll also be shopping and dining in a one-of-a-kind “Lucky to Live Here” t-shirt specially designed by STL-Style.

If you’re a lover of more than one neighborhood, or love your neighborhood a whole lot, you can post as much as you’d like. Every time you post about a neighborhood, you increase that area’s chances of winning a marketing package worth $5,000, courtesy of the St. Louis Convention and Visitors Commission.

So come on, STL. Show us your pride in your neighborhood and tell us why you feel lucky to live here?
