Over 100 nominations have been received for the 13th Celebrate Success Business Awards hosted by the Yorkton Chamber of Commerce.
Donna Brothwell, Chair of the Celebrate Success Committee is pleased with the number of nominations. “The Chamber appreciates everyone who took the time to nominate a business or organization and to the businesses which showed the initiative to nominate themselves,” he said. “The Awards are an ideal time for businesses to be recognized for their achievements and contributions to the community.”
There are 10 categories for Businesses. In addition, the Community Merit category is for not-for-profit organizations and events. “This category enables the community to recognize those organizations which contribute to the overall quality of life and economy of the community,” explained Brothwell.
Now that the Nominee Packages have been submitted, Juanita Polegi, Executive Director indicated the judging process will begin. “An independent panel of seven judges will be convened to review the nominations and select the Award recipients,” she said. “And from all the nominations received, the Judges will select the recipients of the Small and Large Business of the Year Awards.”
The finalists in all the categories – except in the Business of Year categories – will be announced at the Countdown to Celebrate luncheon Thursday September 20 at the Painted Hand Casino.
