Don’t just show love.

Show #DCLove.

The DC Lottery has loved Washington, DC for more than 30 years. In these unprecedented times, we want to shower our city with love in unparalleled fashion. The DC Love campaign is intended as a visual love letter of support and appreciation to our city and the people who call it home. Join us and show #DCLove.

The word “district”, by definition, means an area or region with a distinguishing character. It’s an appropriate title for our hometown, where you’ll find distinguishing character in every neighborhood, down every side street, and in each person.

Step 1:


Tell us how you show #DCLove, or show some #DCLove to someone you know! Just use the #DCLove hashtag and tag @DCLottery in your Instagram post or story!

Step 2:


We’ll award five winners each week. Each winner will receive $100 and a prize pack containing a DC LOVE shirt, poster, and sticker. One winner will be selected to join our special guest host on IG Live!

Step 3:


It’s about more than prizes—#DCLove is part of our city’s culture. It’s how we share our personality, creativity, and passion with one another. Showing #DCLove is a way to uplift our local brothers and sisters—be they neighbors, coworkers, or someone we’ve just met—and let them know we appreciate them and what they do for our community.
