My Vibrant NEO

We want it all – anything that you think tells YOUR story of Northeast Ohio.

You can submit your entry in the drop box below by selecting “Choose File,” entering a description, and clicking “Upload.” Please include in your submission your name, city, and email address. If needed, please include contact information in your submission.

Northeast Ohio has a story. Help us tell it.

You are an expert on your piece of Northeast Ohio. No one else knows your experiences better than you. As part of the Vibrant NEO 2040 initiative, we want to tell stories about what makes Northeast Ohio such an extraordinary place to call home. Through these stories we can all have a better sense of what we need to create a more vibrant, resilient and sustainable present and future Northeast Ohio.

MyVibrantNEO wants you! In fact, it IS you!

What do you love about our region? What needs work? We started the MyVibrantNEO campaign to help connect Northeast Ohioans as part of a conversation about what makes each community great, and what could make each community better.


Simple. Send us a photo. A story. A video. An essay, a personal testimony, a song, a poem, an interview, a collage – use whatever medium you choose.

What will we do with your submission?

First, we will display submissions on this page and on our social media pages. Next, several of the best submissions will be selected for future use in our ongoing public engagement campaign. Your work will be credited wherever we use it.
