Simcoe Hospitality Awards your chance to help celebrate some of the hard working hospitality professionals in our region who make Simcoe County a premier tourism destination. As part of the ORHMA’s commitment to professional development, our goal is to raise scholarship funds that will directly support students in Georgian College School of Hospitality, Tourism and Recreation programs.

This event gives recognition and celebrates the had working people that are the back bone of hospitality and raises money to support the future leaders of our industry through providing up to $10,000 in scholarships to students at Georgian College enrolled in the Hospitality and Tourism programs. To date we have been able to provide $60,000.00 in funding for program scholarships.
