#### <center>SoCal Steemit’s weekly Contest is back!</center>

Our group is all about building the SoCal Steemit community, and we think the best way to build a community is to try to get to know each other a little bit better. Since we are all here in California we thought a great way for us to do that is to to have everyone show us *Your California*!

## The Contest

We want you to show us Your California. That could be your neighborhood, a hike in the mountains, a trip to the mall or beach, a visit to a museum, a BBQ in your backyard. Whatever it is that represents *Your California*  at the time. 

It is hard to choose, right? No worries, we will run this on a weekly basis. So you can show us all the different aspects of *Your California!*

These are the ways you can show us:

* A photo (or more than one) 
* A video
* A story or a poem
* A piece of art the represents *Your California* 

- please add at least 50 words of text telling us why it is representing your California

What next:

* Use the tag #mycalifornia and #socalsteemit on your post.
* Drop the link to your post in the comments of this post.
* Use one of the the SoCalSteemit footer banners in your post.

If you don't have the footer banners yet - you can find them in our [discord](https://discord.gg/TeX8QBz) server in the "info" channel.
