The proclamation joins Nevada with the state of Arizona and the cities of New York, Toronto, Dublin, Las Vegas, Reno, San Jose and San Carlos, Calif. — all of which have recognized Social Media Day since it launched in 2010.

Nevada Gov. Brian Sandoval and Secretary of State Ross Miller, signed the official proclamation, which includes the hashtag #Nevada, on May 30.

Michael Tragash, who helped Reno declare Social Media Day official in 2011, attempted to get a state proclamation signed last year. This year, he teamed up with Demont Daniel, who oversaw the movement that led to the declaration of last year’s Las Vegas Social Media Day, to give it another go. On April 23, Daniel filled out a form requesting a proclamation, and last week he received a call from the governor’s office saying that the proclamation had been approved.

Daniel is organizing Social Media Day 2012 Las Vegas as an all-day event, including a pool party, happy hour and after party. Tragash will again be hosting the Reno event and plans to release details soon.

Mashable began Social Media Day three years ago as a way to recognize the digital revolution — and the event has continued to grow. Participation more than doubled last year with more than 1,400 Meetups and thousands of attendees. This year promises to be even bigger and better.

We’re excited to add Nevada to the list of places that have officially recognized June 30 as a celebration of social media and its ability to empower people to communicate, connect and engage.
