Thailand Gives Back to Heroes: Contest to Award Five Essential Workers a Trip to Thailand

Share Article

The Tourism Authority of Thailand and Matador Network announce a contest allowing entrants to nominate an essential worker to win a trip to Thailand.

This contest is a great opportunity to show our appreciation, and to reward these heroes with a trip to the world’s premier wellness destination.

The challenges of 2020 have shone a light on the heroes hiding in plain sight all around us. Essential workers—teachers, healthcare workers, grocery store clerks, firefighters, mail carriers, and many others—have risked their well-being to keep our worlds turning. And for that, they deserve something incredible.

That’s why the Tourism Authority of Thailand has partnered with Matador Network to award 5 essential workers the trip of a lifetime. Winners will receive round-trip premium economy air transportation (where available) to Thailand for themselves and a guest, along with 5 nights boutique hotel accommodation.

The contest is open to residents of the US (excluding Florida) who are 18 years or older, and can be entered here:

Contest entrants are asked to nominate their “hero”: an essential worker whom they feel deserves the prize, supporting their nomination with text, photos, and audio or video clips as desired. Essential workers are encouraged to nominate themselves to win.

“We are so grateful to all the essential workers out there,” said Ross Borden, Matador Network’s CEO. “This contest and partnership with the Tourism Authority of Thailand is a great opportunity to show our appreciation, and to reward these heroes with a trip to the world’s premier wellness destination.”

Full prize details and the Official Rules of the contest can be accessed from the entry page:
