Newspaper & Magazine articles:
The Golden Host award program, the Yukon's most coveted hospitality award, is presented jointly by the Tourism Industry Association of the Yukon, Whitehorse Chamber of
Commerce and the Yukon Tourism Education Council to honor and recognize individuals for extraordinary service to Yukon visitors. All Yukoners can be nominated, including those
who work in the tourism industry. Everyone nominated for a Golden Host Award receives a letter of congratulations and then two winners per month are chosen - one from
Whitehorse and one from the outlying communities.
The winners (see photos below on this page) receive a letter of thanks and are honored at a Whitehorse Chamber of Commerce monthly luncheon. Their names also appear in ads
sponsored by the Yukon News newspaper and CKRW radio. Visitors are encouraged to recognize residents who go the extra mile, taking that extra step to help them enjoy their
stay while in the Yukon. Visitors can nominate individuals or businesses by completing the nominating form which can be found at all visitor centers, information kiosks, and
participating businesses like Midnight Sun B&B! With visitors' participation a higher standard of service will be offered throughout the Yukon.
