World Legacy Awards

National Geographic announced its 2017 World Legacy Awards winners and finalists in an awards ceremony on March 8, 2017 during the ITB Berlin Convention, the world’s largest travel trade fair.  The National Geographic World Legacy Awards honors leaders in the travel industry – businesses, organizations, and travel destinations that are paving the way in sustainable tourism best practices.

The Washington Trophy Center has had the distinction of providing National Geographic with its World Legacy Awards for the last three years.  The five winners each received an 8” laser engraved Optical Crystal Award manufactured by our product partner, Tropar.  This piece features a gleaming blue and silver globe.  Please see Tropar’s catalog for this award and many other product choices.

The 10 finalists each received a personalized 7″ x 9″ rosewood piano finished plaque with a laser engraved (text and globe logo) matte black aluminum plate and backed with a silver mat.  These specialty plaques are produced in-house.  Sample award plaques can be viewed here.
