A California woman and Texas man won the top two prizes in the Nevada Commission on Tourism’s (NCOT) “Your Koolest RV Moment” 2004 promotional contest.
Contestants were asked to submit photos that best captured the fun of keeping cool with a recreational vehicle. Lt. Gov. Lorraine Hunt announced Carolyn Fox of Jackson, Calif., as the grand prize winner. Fox won a TurboKool evaporative cooler for her RV for her photo of two people literally cooling their heels at Spencer’s Hot Springs in central Nevada’s Smokey Valley with their RV parked nearby.
Second prize, a week’s stay at Saddle West RV Park in Pahrump, Nev., went to John Schwartz of Livingston, Texas, for his photo of an RV sheltered in the shade of a large rock at Valley of Fire State Park near Las Vegas.
“RV enthusiasts sent so many creative, interesting pictures of their ‘koolest’ moment that it was a challenge to choose the contest winners,” said Hunt, NCOT chair. “The contest pictures showed the many ways that people enjoy RV travel in Nevada, including outdoor recreational and adventure sites, scenic wonders and places to stay.”
The contest began in January and concluded July 14. Only photos shot in Nevada were eligible.
