The City of Yellowknife has the winners of the 3rd annual ‘Be A Tourist in Your Own Town’ contest.

The Grand Prize winner is Linda Nickerson, winning a trip for two to Blachford Lodge; Paul Falvo won the runner-up prize of a prelude experience that includes all new camping gear and a free rental at a campsite; and Kelsey Wick was the 3rd winner, getting the chance to use 6 workshop certificates at Old Town Glassworks.

The Regional Superintendent of the Department of Industry, Tourism and Investment, Kris Johnson, was a part of the draw. She was ecstatic over this years numbers.

It was another huge success this year. Over 2300 ballots were entered, with 1899 people entering those ballots. It’s great to see consistent support from the community and businesses alike. That’s what it’s all about.

Johnson says that the contest is a great way for Yellowknife to be able to show off the great amenities that are available to the residents. She stressed that she couldn’t be more thankful to the people who participated and that she’s already excited for the 4th annual ‘Be a Tourist’ contest.

I can’t wait to do this all over again for next year.
