Cliff Climber Awards

The Northeast Georgia Mountains Travel Association wants to recognize someone each month for an innovative marketing campaign, new tourism product, new or improved event, etc. In other words, if someone has done something interesting, positive or successful in tourism in our region, we want to give them a pat on the back. It could even be a legislator who introduced or championed good tourism legislation. You can nominate yourself or someone else. Winners earn the designation Cliff Climbers — for those who strive for excellence and achievement. So give it some thought and send your nominations to Cheryl Smith by the 1st of every month. Include the person’s name and why he or she should be recognized as a Cliff Climber.
