Virginia is for Lovers

The following is taken from may or not be accurate.  Make sure when researching that you don't copy word for word from articles..use your own words.  Below is an example of plagiarism.

David N. Martin and George Woltz of Martin and Woltz Inc. of Richmond, Virginia created the slogan after winning the Virginia State Travel account in 1968.
Originally, they had come up with history ads, "Virginia is for History Lovers"; beach ads, "Virginia is for Beach Lovers"; and mountain ads, "Virginia is for Mountain Lovers". This approach was eventually discarded as too limiting, and the qualifiers were dropped. "Virginia is for Lovers" was born.

This may be a better way to take information:

The slogan "Virginia is for Lovers" was created in 1968 by David N. Martin and George Woltz. They were from Richmond, Virginia and they were awarded the Virginia State Travel account.  Their first ads were "Virginia is for History Lovers" and Virginia is for Beach Lovers" and even Virginia is for mountain Lovers". you can see....that's a lot of advertisements.  These were dropped and made room for an overall "Virginia is for Lovers".
