Chadron & Crawford Community Surveys

Northwest Nebraska Tourism Launches Community Surveys

CHADRON – Northwest Nebraska Tourism is cooperating with Hollman Media and researchers at the University of Nebraska at Kearney to assess how well Dawes County is performing in categories known to be important to both residents and visitors. All Dawes County residents and visitors to the county are encouraged to complete the survey on both Chadron and Crawford’s needs and priorities. The Chadron Survey is located HERE and the Crawford Survey is HERE . Each surveys takes approximately 5-10 minutes.

“I hope residents and visitors will be involved and lend their voice to this process,” said Kristina Harter, Northwest Nebraska Tourism Director. “Communication requires listening first, and this survey provides us a chance to listen in a statistically valid format.”

This is an early step in a year-long process to update the Dawes County Travel Board’s strategic plan that will guide priorities for the tourism office and other tourism stakeholders and partners in Dawes County.

The Chadron Chamber and Visitors Center has provided a computer available to those who may need it and it will be available for use during normal business hours. All responses must be complete before February 1, 2018.



Since 1980, the Dawes County Travel Board has been actively promoting Dawes County as an ideal tourist destination. The Dawes County Travel Board believes there is always something to discover in Northwest Nebraska. Among the Northwestern Nebraska charm is the rich history and natural beauty of Fort Robinson State Park and Chadron State Park, the abundant public lands in the Pine Ridge known for outdoor recreation opportunities and diverse landscapes, and not to mention friendly, small town atmospheres.
