• NOMINATION INSTRUCTIONS

    Nominations will be accepted beginning January 6, 2020 through 11:59 pm, January 31, 2020. 

    The competition is open to all companies operating in Summit County and Chamber membership is not required. As always, companies are allowed and encouraged to submit entries for as many categories in the Business Excellence Awards as they feel are applicable.

                                                                                               

    IF YOU ARE A CUSTOMER OR EMPLOYEE WISHING TO NOMINATE A BUSINESS:

    Please follow the link HERE to fill out a short, preliminary Nomination Form.  We will notify the business that they have been nominated and invite them to complete the remaining, in-depth Nomination Form that the selection panel uses to determine the winner.  

     

    IF YOU ARE A BUSINESS OWNER OR COMPANY PRINCIPAL NOMINATING YOUR OWN BUSINESS:

    Please follow the link HERE to read the FAQs BEFORE submitting. To review an example of a strong entry, find our sample nomination HERE.

    Then follow the link HERE to fill out the complete Nomination Form.

      This form requires detailed information provided in a strict 250-word maximum per question format.  It is HIGHLY suggested that you read the FAQs and download a copy of the Nomination Form to plan your answers prior to filling out the online form.  Unfortunately, the online form does not have a save and return option so it will need to be filled out in one sitting.  In addition, the system is very sensitive and will “throw out” forms in which the word count has been exceeded.  Unfortunately, no error message will be generated to alert the submitter to this fact. Therefore, crafting your answers in a different program, verifying that they are 250 words or less and then transferring them into the form is recommended.
