The Seymour Awards recognize leaders in Alaska's tourism industry. The awards feature nine categories, and winners are selected on the basis of excellence in their products and services, exceptional contributions to the industry, or enhancement of Anchorage's image as a visitor destination.

The Culinary Arts, Hospitality, Dietetics & Nutrition Division received the Member Contribution to Visitor Industry Award for their commitment to training and education. Graduates of the division's culinary arts and hospitality & restaurant management programs continue to bolster the state's hospitality and tourism industry through their work.

"I am very pleased to announce that my faculty team and staff were recognized by Visit Anchorage for our contribution to the Alaska visitor’s industry through our role as educators," said Tim Doebler, director of the division. "It is quite an honor to receive a Seymour Award, and we are all very humbled."
