Indiana Dunes Tourism has announced the “Indiana Dunes Mask-Uerade” video contest— a social media contest to encourage residents and visitors to wear masks in the Indiana Dunes area (Porter County). For winners, there will be more than $1,000 in prizes in the form of cash and gift cards to local businesses.

Michelle Senderhauf, communications director at Indiana Dunes Tourism, said, “Even though there is a statewide mask mandate, we wanted to encourage people to wear masks in a fun and entertaining way. We’ve been wearing our masks at Indiana Dunes Tourism and we’d like to reward others who are joining us.”

Gov. Eric Holcomb signed an executive order mandating masks in Indiana, which means that masks should be worn when people are inside public businesses like restaurants or stores as well as outdoors any time it is not feasible to maintain social distancing.

“We were approached by partners to help businesses educate visitors and residents on the importance of masks in the Indiana Dunes area” said Lorelei Weimer, executive director of Indiana Dunes Tourism. “We thought the contest would be a great way to show the positive side of masks and to help with the economic development of our area.”

Anyone living in or visiting Porter County is invited to participate. The Mask-Uerade videos must be recorded at a restaurant, hotel, shop, park, or attraction in the Indiana Dunes or surrounding Porter County communities. Videos can be submitted through August and winners will be announced in September.
