Last night there were Explore Minnesota Tourism Awards given out to different "individuals, organizations and tourism businesses" who contributed "to the state's $16 billion travel industry." This happened during the 2020 Explore Minnesota Tourism Conference that's going on in Alexandria, MN. And there were four Southern Minnesota towns who won awards!

In the 'Destination Marketing Award' category the following awards were given:

  • Branding & Integrated Marketing Campaign: Faribault Area Chamber of Commerce and Tourism
  • Niche Targeting: Montgomery Area Community Club
  • Special Project: Minne-Roadtrip (Owatonna, Faribault, and Northfield)

These are some exciting awards for towns in our neck of the woods! A huge congratulations to Faribault, Montgomery, Northfield, and Owatonna on winning these awards last night!
