MATRA continues to monitor the rapidly changing situation related to the spread of COVID-19. We understand the concerns for health and safety as well as the economic impact on our member companies. This coupled with local and state recommendations to limit group gatherings, MATRA has decided to cancel our upcoming Spring Training March 24th in Portsmouth, Virginia.
Great news about our Scholarship Program
Starting on December 1st, 2020, DCF (Delaware Community Foundation) will be accepting our online scholarship applications where we will be awarding TWO $5,000 scholarships for 2020. Deadline for submissions is March 15. Full information is ready now.
Due to the overwhelming
response to last year’s inaugural awards contest, an additional
Category has been created for this year’s competition. Current MATRA rental members
are invited to submit eligible events installed from January 1, 2019
through December 31, 2019. This year’s categories are: “Excellence in
Tenting” and “Best Collaboration of MATRA Members”.
Deadline for submissions is June 30, 2020. Entries are $75 per submission. **Must be a MATRA rental member
in good standing and membership dues paid for 2020 outlined under
“Eligibility” below. You may enter as many events as you like in each
category, however, each submission is $75.
All finalists in each category will be recognized at the MATRA Tent Show, with the winner and recipients of the 2020 MATRA Peak Awards, announced and presented during the Dinner on Wednesday evening. NOTE: The Tent Show Awards dinner is a separate ticket; can only be purchased with a conference package. We encourage each entrant to attend The Tent Show. However, if unable to attend, they must assign a designated individual to receive the Award on their behalf.
Finalists will be highlighted on MATRA social media sites &
newsletter. Award winners will receive additional press releases for
your local newspapers and you will receive a logo designation that can
be attached to your electronic stationery/marketing collateral. In
addition, the judges will select ONE photo from the collateral
pieces submitted by the winning entries to grace the cover of the 2021
MATRA Membership Directory. The judges may select the Membership
Directory Cover photo from either category.
