Visit Yuma's Sunshine Award
Recognizing our community's frontline workforce
To live is to experience, and it's those experiences that drive us to step out of our comfort zones and try new things. A location's reputation for having an amazing product may drive someone to visit, but it's the experience while they're there that will bring them back and more importantly prompt them to recommend their experience to someone else. Visit Yuma's mission is to share the beauty of the Desert Southwest with the world and although our community has plenty of attractions, it's the people that make the trip worth taking.
The Visit Yuma Sunshine Award recognizes those individuals who go out of their way to make a patron's visit a memorable one. As a community, we'd like to thank those men and women who aspire to provide quality service, no matter what. Each year during Visit Yuma's Annual Membership Meeting the winner or winners will be recognized and awarded with a prize and an honorary pin. Those chosen will also be recognized as Tourism Ambassadors promoting quality service and community empowerment.
Visit Yuma Sunshine Award nominees must be nominated by a direct supervisor or member of the community. The submission must include a detailed account of an experience involving the nominee in which they displayed an act that went above and beyond.
