“Welcome to Our New Brunswick” Contest

New Brunswick High School Students, we want to hear from you!

New Brunswick is a province of natural beauty, unique attractions, spectacular adventures, and tantalizing delicacies. Tourists from around the world are attracted to all parts of our province to experience the wonders of NB.

Many times the first people to welcome these guests are members of the Hospitality and Tourism Industry that employs approximately 30,000 people in our province! They frequently create both the first and lasting impressions for our visitors. Being the primary promoters of our province, we would like to learn more about them, their venues, and the work they do.

You can help by participating in the Tourism Industry Association of New Brunswick (TIANB) contest, “Welcome to Our New Brunswick”, sponsored by TIANB in partnership with Education and Early Childhood Development (EECD). In a project of your choice, introduce us to a member of the tourism industry who is having a positive impact upon your community. We look forward to learning from you! Yes, there are prizes!

1st Prize: $1000 and an invitation to the 2022 Tourism Summit Gala in November

2nd Prize: $500

3rd Prize: $250

The prizes awarded as above for each of the Anglophone and Francophone sectors have been generously donated by TIANB.
