The Helena Advertising  & Promotion Commission was the recipient of the Community Tourism Development Award at the 2019 Arkansas Governor’s Conference on Tourism held this week in Hot Springs. This award is presented to a community or organization that has achieved substantial success toward the enhancement of local resources through imaginative and innovative development efforts.

The award recognized the unique  life-size interactive postcards that were designed and built by Misti and Will Staley and funded by the A & P Commission. The postcards are strategically placed around Helena and encourage visitors to “follow the postcard trail” for great photo opportunities at some of Helena’s historical sites.
