GREENVILLE — The Darke County Visitors Bureau was recently recognized with a RUBY Award Citation of Excellence from the Ohio Travel Association at the 2016 Ohio Conference on Travel, which took place October 26-28 in Columbus.
The Bureau won the award in the “Brochure” category for the Western Ohio Frontier Trail brochure, highlighting historical sites in and around Darke County. The guide was designed by CJ Jasenski of Projectonetwenty, Greenville. It is the second state marketing award the brochure has won in 2016.
The RUBY Awards, sponsored in 2016 by Ohio Magazine, are the Ohio Travel Association’s way of honoring those who have found the most innovative way to market their destination, experiences, or services. This is the nineteenth year for the RUBY Awards.
“The RUBY Awards are a premier recognition of excellence in tourism marketing in our state,” said Matthew Staugler, executive director of the Darke County Visitors Bureau. “The Western Ohio Frontier Trail has been a great vehicle for us to attract heritage travelers to our area. Our area is rich in American history and the brochure is a terrific way to tell that story to potential visitors.”
