2022 ROOKIE OF THE YEAR AWARD NOMINATION FORM

The Hospitality Saskatchewan Awards recognize and foster excellence in our province’s tourism industry. These industry
awards honour people, places, businesses, organizations, and events that go above and beyond to offer superior
tourism experiences to visitors and residents.

 

ELIGIBILITY CRITERIA

Applications will be accepted from all individuals, organizations or businesses that support the Saskatchewan tourism
industry.


Given the extraordinary difficult times over the last 2 years this award recognizes a Saskatchewan business,
partnership, organization, event, or attraction that launched their business during COVID-19, and has demonstrated
innovation, ingenuity, hard work and perseverance to establish a strong, viable and successful new business in the
tourism sector. The recipient of this award will be an entity that was launched after January 1, 2020.


Organizations or businesses may be self‐nominated or nominated by another party.

 

NOMINATION PROCESS

Nominations are due by Monday August 1, 2022. Awards will be presented at the 90th annual Hospitality
Saskatchewan Conference in Regina on Monday September 26.


Nominations must be completed on this form and submitted prior to the deadline.


Nominations must adhere to the general eligibility criteria and category‐specific criteria. Nominations must be original
each year and in each category. Tourism Saskatchewan reserves the right to re-categorize or reject nominations that do
not meet these rules or criteria, or the spirit of the awards program.


Nominees must be advised by the applicant that they are being nominated for a Hospitality Saskatchewan Award.

 

EVALUATION

Nominations will be reviewed and scored by an Award Selection Committee and will be kept completely confidential.

The Award Selection Committee is an external panel. Committee members who have a conflict of interest remove
themselves from judging the category in question.

The Award Selection Committee will select a maximum of three finalists for each award (excluding the Tourism Builder
Award). Finalists will be notified by mail approximately one month prior to the Hospitality Saskatchewan Awards
