Suffolk County is holding a photo contest, and County Executive Steve Bellone is asking residents to get involved.
All residents have to do is take a picture that depicts why they love calling Suffolk County home and load it to Facebook with the #SuffolkSnapshot. Suggestions include landmarks, tourist attractions, natural resources, and downtowns.
The contest, Mr. Bellone said, "gives residents a chance to capture that uniqueness and beauty of Suffolk County and share it with their friends and neighbors through Facebook."
