The Prowers County Lodging Tax Panel, an appointed group of volunteers charged with promoting tourism in Prowers County, announced it has won a $25,000 Marketing Match Grant from the Colorado Tourism Office to develop a website and engage in digital marketing strategies that promote Prowers County.

Prowers County has never had the benefit of a dedicated tourism website, leading to missed opportunities by visitors. With a website, the Lodging Tax Board can consolidate all tourism-related information in one place and present the county with one voice and brand.
