Trailblazer Awards

We believe a “Trailblazer” is someone or something that forges a path of greatness and guides others along the way. Visit Grove City is thrilled to share the Trailblazer Awards, aimed at celebrating the Grove City tourism community and honoring the people, places, and hard work that make it successful.

Trailblazers deserve to be recognized for their greatness, which is why the nominees will be acknowledged and the awards presented at Visit Grove City’s Annual Meeting.

If you would like to nominate a Trailblazer please download and fill out the nomination form.

Then, email the completed form to answers@visitgrovecityoh.com with the subject line format: Trailblazer Nomination – Nominee Name.
If you have any questions, please call (614) 539-8747.


The Trailblazer Awards include three categories: Individual, Business/Attraction, and Community Event. The criteria for each category can be found below:

Individual: This individual demonstrates excellence in creating a positive visitor experience and serves as a strong ambassador for Grove City’s tourism community. They seek to always go above and beyond in everything they do. This individual can be an employee at a local business, a government representative, or a volunteer with a local organization.

Business/Attraction: This business or attraction represents the best of Grove City’s tourism assets. From the experience they provide visitors to their enhancement of the community’s image, they are always seeking to improve the tourism industry in Grove City. This can be a for-profit business or a place that draws visitors by providing something of interest or pleasure.

Community Event: This community event not only brings together the local community but also aims to create a memorable visitor experience. The event organizers strive to continually improve the event and the Grove City tourism industry. This can be any event, large or small, that takes place in Grove City.
