One Australian Travel Advisor is a cool US$2,000 richer after being named the winner of  Brand USA’s Seven Badge Scoop incentive.

The incentive, designed to celebrate the launch of Brand USA’s seven new specialist badges AND increase Travel Advisor’s USA selling power, had over 100 Aussie entries.

To enter the draw to win the major prize of a $2,000USD Visa Gift Card, Advisors simply needed to finish any one of the seven new specialist badges.

The new badges included Chickasaw Country (Oklahoma); Minnesota; Mall of America; New Orleans (Louisiana); North Dakota; San Jose (California); or South Dakota.

The lucky Australia winner is Justine Frost from Helloworld Travel Leopold in Victoria. CONGRATULATIONS!
