The Lincoln Convention & Visitors Bureau celebrated the completion of the “Be A Tourist” passport program Thursday, August 18th at 5:00 p.m. during an event at the Lincoln Children’s Museum. The winners, along with a guest, were invited for the celebration.  Prizes were presented by the Lincoln Convention and Visitors Bureau staff.

Winners included: Best Photo Contest: Gina Nelson; Adult winners: Diana Yearsley and Mrs. David Petro and Youth winners: Ben Amen-Bustamante and Gabrielle Francis-Thomas.
The “Be a Tourist” program, presented by the Lincoln CVB, is in its 8th year as a program to generate awareness of Lincoln area attractions. The program was created to give people an alternative to traveling out of town for vacations by staying in Lincoln and discovering some of the hidden gems that Lincoln has to offer.  Participants include families, daycares, couples, as well as retired citizens who have embraced the program by rediscovering Lincoln’s many attractions.   This excitement has spread to others visiting our city from out of state, with more passports turned in this year compared to last year.
