Gurnee – Inspired by the 2014 Winter Olympics, the Illinois Office of Tourism (IOT) is showcasing the state’s brightest stars in the tourism industry with the second annual ‘Lincoln Awards.’ Award recipients are those “behind the scenes stars” that go above and beyond for the Illinois tourism industry. The awards will be presented during a special program at the upcoming Excellence in Tourism Awards on February 3, part of the 2014 Governor’s Conference on Travel & Tourism.

Lake County’s own Jason Campbell, Bell Captain, KeyLime Cove Indoor Waterpark Resort, is honored as one of fifteen award finalists this year. Visit Lake County’s President, Maureen Riedy, is behind Jason Campbell. “We are proud to have Jason representing Lake County. His passion and enthusiasm for his job in the hospitality industry helps support tourism in the county,” said Maureen Riedy.

Illinois State Travel Director, Jen Hoelzle, is pleased to honor these individuals who dedicate their careers to making Illinois a memorable destination for travelers. “The people of Illinois are what make visiting the Land of Lincoln so great,” said Hoelzle. “I want to congratulate and thank each of this year’s finalists for their outstanding dedication to Illinois tourism.”
