For the first time, Discover Northwest Nebraska will recognize outstanding people and businesses participating in the regional tourism industry.

Nominations are open for awards in three categories: Frontline Employee of the Year, Tourism Business/Attraction of the Year and Tourism Volunteer of the Year.

โ€œOur tourism industry professionals work hard each year to provide a fun, affordable vacation to hundreds of thousands of visitors to Northwest Nebraska. Theyโ€™ve survived a pandemic and record visitor numbers while dealing with staffing shortages and supply chain issues in recent years,โ€ said Discover Northwest Nebraska Director Kerri Rempp. โ€œWe want to honor outstanding performances by the employees and businesses that contribute so much to the economic activity of the region.โ€

The winners will be announced this spring at the annual Treasure Chest of the Northwest industry gathering hosted by Discover Northwest Nebraska and Chadrad Communications. Nominations are due March 1, 2023, and can be submitted online at or by contacting Rempp at 308-432-3006 or at
