For the first time, the Gettysburg Convention & Visitors Bureau will honor a worker in the Adams County hospitality industry with the Tourism Star Award, as part of National Travel & Tourism Week, May 7-15.
This award will be given to a person who not only works hard at their job, but one who takes pride in the destination, is a great ambassador for tourism and the tourism community, and works at a high level of customer service.
“This is a great way to recognize superior workers in the tourism industry,” said Norris Flowers, President of the Gettysburg CVB. “It’s important that visitors to Adams County are treated well and given a great experience so that they will return and help spread the word about the destination. This award honors those people who go above and beyond to give our visitors that great experience.”
Nominations for the Tourism Star Award may be submitted by any business, individual or organization in Adams County, but self-nominations will not be accepted. Qualified workers include all levels of service, from front-line employees to owners and managers, but nominated employees must have worked at their current location for more than six months.
Nomination forms are available at www.gettysburg.travel/media/ or at the CVB’s administration office at 571 West Middle Street, or the CVB’s information desks at either the Historic Gettysburg Train Station or the Gettysburg National Military Park Museum and Visitor Center.
All entries must be received by April 8. The winner of the Tourism Star Award will be announced at a reception on May 11 during National Travel & Tourism Week. Winners will receive the Tourism Star Award and a $250 cash prize.
