Voice of TPA contest launches for a third year!

Enter for a once-in-a-lifetime chance to record a shuttle message greeting at TPA.

It’s back! 

After last year’s successful fundraiser benefiting 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 as the voice of the Airport shuttles for the entire month of July. 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 one raffle ticket to enter in the contest. You can buy as many chances to win as you'd like – the more you donate, the better your odds. All proceeds will go to United Way Suncoast, to help 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 8, through Wednesday, May 31. The winner’s name will be drawn at random and announced on social media on June 1, 2023.

Last year's Voice of TPA winner, Coretta Youmans, shared that winning this contest felt like an opportunity she had dreamed about for a long time. Read more about her experience by clicking HERE

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.
