Don't Wait...NOMINATE!

Click HERE to nominate someone for a Howdy Award for Hospitality Excellence!

The Howdy Awards for Hospitality Excellence are presented by the Greater Springfield Convention & Visitors Bureau (GSCVB) to honor exceptional frontline hospitality employees in the Pioneer Valley who go above and beyond for you.  Tell us about that terrific server, bartender, bus driver or hotel clerk.  Or maybe that incredibly helpful person you met in a retail store, or at an area attraction.  Just take a moment and submit a Howdy nomination.

The deadline is February 1.  Nominations are collected by the GSCVB, then a panel of judges consisting of hospitality industry professionals from outside the Pioneer Valley selects one winner in each of the categories.   Winners are NOT selected based on ballot count…it’s more important to write about WHY your Howdy nominee is so special!

The Howdy Awards for Hospitality Excellence

Each winner will be announced at the 2012 Howdy Awards, which will be held May 15, 2012 at the Log Cabin Banquet & Meeting House in Holyoke.  Tickets will be available in May by calling 413-755-1345.
