Tampa International Airport's Voice of TPA contest returns

One winner, drawn at random, will voice TPA’s shuttle messages the entire month of July.

It’s back!

After last year’s successful inaugural fundraiser that resulted in more than $16,000 going to the United Way Suncoast, the Voice of TPA contest is returning this month.

Tampa International Airport is again offering one lucky winner a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to greet passengers for the entire month of July as the voice of the Airport shuttles. The winner’s voice will replace Mayor Jane Castor’s message that plays for passengers arriving and departing.

Here’s how it works:

A $5 donation will get you entered in the contest, but the more you donate, the better your odds. All proceeds will go to United Way Suncoast, supporting its mission of providing food, financial assistance and educational support to those in need in the Tampa Bay community. The contest runs from Monday, May 2, through Tuesday, May 31, at 2 p.m., when the winner’s name will be drawn at random and announced on social media. 

To enter the contest, visit www.VoiceofTPA.com

TPA’s relationship with United Way Suncoast dates back more than three decades. Hillsborough County Aviation Authority employees raise funds for UWS as part of an annual campaign. The Airport has also hosted nine 5K on the Runway events benefitting the non-profit organization. Since 2012, HCAA has donated more than $1 million to UWS, placing TPA among the most generous workplaces in Tampa Bay.

Participants must be at least 18 years of age to enter the contest and the shuttle recording must be done on-site at Tampa International Airport. Other terms and conditions apply.
