A recent Gallup survey found that 17 percent of Idahoans have made plans to leave the state within a year. Those planning to leave told Gallup it was primarily for work, family, and school-related reasons.

If given the option, 29 percent of Idahoans say they'd leave while 69 percent told Gallup they'd prefer to stay. So, we want to know why you've decided to live in Idaho.

Post a photo on Instagram that shows why you live in Idaho (or why you want to leave). Include a caption explaining your image, tell us where you live, and use the hashtag #WhyIStay.

Your photo could be featured on our website and on our Instagram feed. You can also join the conversation on Twitter.

Check out other public radio stations that are asking listeners why they stay: WBUR, WESA, St. Louis Public Radio, West Virginia Public Radio, Michigan Public Radio, KUOW, WNYC, KQED, WLRN, and KTOO.
