GTTP Research Competition & Award

Each year the GTTP holds a competition for the best school research project. Research topics are selected by the GTTP Directors.

The topic for 2017 is “Bleisure” Travel. This is a category of travel that describes travelers who are able to able to take business trips and add a day or two for leisure activities before returning home.

Guidelines for Research Award

Schools that are part of the GTTP can research the topic and enter the competition. Each GTTP member country selects a winner of the GTTP Research Award. The winning school sends two students and their teacher to an international conference. In 2011 the conference will be held in Monte Carlo, Monaco. At this meeting, winning teams will present their findings and meet students and teachers from all GTTP-member countries. In addition to their presentation, each winning team prepares a case study that can be used by students and teachers everywhere. Contact the GTTP Director in your country if you want to enter the competition.

How The Competition Works:
Each member country selects a winning team for the GTTP Research Award in their country. The winning school sends two students and their teacher to an international conference at Sophia Antipolis near Nice, France. At this meeting the winning teams present their research findings and meet students and teachers from all GTTP-member countries. They also will have the opportunity to meet the GTTP Global Partner Advisory Board members.These competitions require students to research a tourism-related topic by first using library materials and the Internet. This phase is then followed by the students interviewing people who have information relevant to the topic. The third phase is analyzing the information gathered and creating a written report or “case study,” which includes a teacher’s guide. The case study can be used by students and teachers everywhere. The fourth phase is the development of a presentation, based on their case study, that each team will deliver to an audience composed of the other winning teams and their teachers.
