· Partnership Award for two or more partners who most exemplify cooperative efforts in creating new or improved tourism projects

· Individual Customer Service Award to the person who fully personifies the culture of customer service

“We are lucky to have so many individuals, businesses and groups dedicated to increasing tourism in our county. We are proud to recognize partners who go the extra mile. They deserve to be honored. We look forward to receiving nominations from the public to help us identify the best of the best,” said Danielle Cowan, CCTCA executive director.
