The #YQSstrong campaign is a way for us to celebrate what we love about St. Thomas and area.
YQS is the airport code for the St. Thomas Municipal Airport, and even though we can't travel far right now, we are celebrating all the wonderful things we have close to home!
weekly photo contest
Help us celebrate! Share or submit a photo of your favourite restaurant, a picturesque view, your favourite local art, a pint of craft beer, even a photo of something positive you're doing during isolation - anything and everything you love about YQS!
Share your pictures with us - just post a picture using #YQSstrong or use our form below. It will get added to our photo gallery - and also gives you the chance to win!
Every Friday we will randomly pick a #YQSstrong winning photo and share it on social media. PLUS we will be giving the person who took that picture + on other other random entry a $25 gift certificate to a local St. Thomas business.
That's 2 chances to win EVERY WEEK! And you can enter as MANY times as you like!
