The Telluride Tourism Board recently announced an annual awards program that will recognize community members for excellence in promoting and retaining tourism to the destination. The inaugural Spirit of Tourism Achievement Recognition (STAR) Awards will be announced at the TTB's Annual Meeting on June 7 at the Madeline Hotel & Residences. The STAR Awards will focus on three tourism focused areas: Service, Marketing & PR and the Destination SuperSTAR. Prizes ranging from Ride Festival tickets to an ad in the Visitor Guide will be awarded to the winners.
Candidates can be nominated by colleagues or self-nominated, based on the following criteria:
Destination SuperSTAR: The Destination SuperSTAR has positively impacted the destination through an event, festival, business or cutting edge way that promotes Telluride and drives visitors to the area. The Destination SuperSTAR will be awarded a half-page ad in the Winter 2016-2017 Visitor Guide.
