#KSBucketList Toolkit

In 2015 the Kansas Tourism Division kicked of the Kansas Bucket List campaign. We accepted submissions for the top Kansas experiences in the Spring and Summer. An independent panel reviewed the submissions and chose the top 70 Kansas Bucket List experiences which were revealed in the 70th Anniversary issue of KANSAS! Magazine this winter.

We will celebrate the top 70 experiences throughout 2016 with contests, social media posts, press releases and much more. This online toolkit is meant to be a resource to assist you in celebrating the Top 70 and inspire travel to and within Kansas.  Can you provide a prize? We are requesting prizes (minimum value $25) from the Top 70 Kansas Bucket List experiences and communities to make the contests more exciting.

We are also accepting any images or photography from the Top 70 locations for use in our promotion efforts. Please contact Logan Hildebrand with any photos, videos or questions for the Kansas Bucket List.
