• Submission Process

    Entries in the Summit Business Excellence Awards 2017 are now being accepted. The entry deadline is January 12, 2018. All companies operating in Summit County are eligible to apply. As always, companies are allowed and encouraged to submit entries in multiple categories in Summit Business Excellence Awards.

    1.A brief description of the nominee’s achievements during the calendar year 2017

    Using the examples in each nomination form, describe the nominee’s achievements during the 2017 eligibility period (that is from July 1, 2016 until day of submission). Please focus on specific accomplishments relevant to the award category under consideration, relating them to past performance or industry norms. Make sure to mention obstacles overcome, innovations or discoveries made, and specific results. There is a 250 word maximum for each answer.

    The “nominee” is either the company, a person, or a media campaign, so accordingly, this section can be:

    • in Company categories: about company accomplishments
    • in Entrepreneur category – this will be about personal accomplishments
    • in Media categories, this section can detail the campaign, event or website being submitted.
    Hyperlinks to any news coverage, press releases or materials supporting the submission

    Press stories, press releases, video clips, work samples and more can make a difference. If available, please include links in your submission (3-5 links is typical); these could be to your online news room, the best recent article, or a past award. In consideration for the judges’ time, please limit your hyperlinks to 10 links at most.

    • in Media categories, this section can be a company history.
