What a ride! In an amazingly tight race, Victoria took the lead and won the honor. Let’s congratulate our new Towel Day Ambassador! As our new TDA, Victoria will receive a free year of membership in ZZ9, the official Hitchhikers appreciation society, and a custom T-Shirt from from us!
“We enter the Victorian age, which I think means the next Ambassador needs to be named Edward. There are no losers in the Towel Day Ambassador Contest. You always win the experience of running. Mad props go to those that ran, remember guys the first time I ran for the honor I did not win. I founded Galactic Hitchhikers and won the next year. There is always next year!”
Galactic Hitchhikers spoke with Victoria about her victory
“Holy Zarquon Singing Fish! That was a close contest! Many thanks to Michael, Rosie, and Yvette, who made this genuinely tense right up to the very end. I am astounded so many people voted for me, but it feels great to be a confirmed hoopy frood. I look forward to representing Earth as Towel Day Ambassador, spreading the word about towel ownership and leading you cool cats in a zarking great Towel Day and beyond. A round of celebratory PGGBs, on me!”
Promotional considerations brought to you in part by:
This year’s Towel Day Ambassador will receive a custom TDA t-shirt, compliments of Galactic Hitchhikers
Victoria will also enjoy a year of membership in the official Hitchhiker appreciation society, ZZ9.org
Great this year!
Every entry this year was just fantastic! We wish the runners up luck with their regional Ambassadorial duties. Nobody loses the Towel Day Ambassador Contest. Everyone who runs becomes the local Ambassador of their region.
Galactic Hitchhiker looks forward to working with Victoria in the coming year in helping to fulfill her campaign promises.
What is the Towel Day Ambassador Contest?
Each year since 2011 Hitchhiker fans and Douglas Adams fanatics vote to democratically decide on a representative for Earth as the Intergalactic Towel Day Ambassador. Contestants are asked to make a two minute YouTube video, explaining why they would be right for the job.
While the Contest is run independently by our friends over at the Towel Day Ambassador Contest page, here at Galactic Hitchhikers it’s one of our most sacred institutions. In our community there are no former Ambassadors, once elected they have the job for life.
While the real prize is the honor of representing our fandom, this year Galactic Hitchhikers is teaming up with ZZ9.org to provide some hoopy swag to this year’s new Ambassador. Read more here. Head over to the Towel Day Ambassador page on Facebook, and follow the page for next year!
