At the national level, the Travel & Tourism courses taught in GTTP member countries emphasize student research, team activities, and internships (work-study) at local businesses. At a global level, GTTP‚ global student competitions encourage research and communications skills. There are two student competitions:
GTTP Digital Photo Competition
Something Special. The goal of the Digital Photo competition is to show a special aspect of a student‚ community to people who have never been there. The photo should make the viewer want to come visit. Photographs could be of a historic building; a natural feature, such as a lake or mountain; an event, such as a procession; a local specialty, such as food; an activity or sport; a person or a group of people.

The winning school in each country sends a team to the GTTP International Student-Teacher Conference held each year in a different country. In 2010, it is being held in Munich, Germany. This competition is sponsored by the GTTP‚ Global Partners and the Aldo Papone Endowment. For details, click here.
