Nominations open for Mark of Excellence awards

HUMBOLDT — Nominations have opened for the Humboldt and District Chamber of Commerce’s 21st Mark of Excellence awards.

“I just can't underline how important it is to get these nominations in and get these businesses recognized,” said Brent Fitzpatrick, the chamber’s executive director.

“It's an opportunity for those businesses be recognized for the outstanding work that they do. These are folks that work day in and day out and they may lose sight of the fact that they're doing their job for people.”

There are 11 awards businesses can be nominated for that celebrate items like exceptional new businesses, great customer service, strong marketing efforts, excellent entrepreneurs, community involvement, and leadership in safety and inclusivity.

Somebody can also be nominated to be inducted into the business hall of fame for a significant impact on the landscape of the Humboldt business community.

A new award is the Humboldt Broncos Youth Involvement Award, sponsored by the Humboldt Broncos Memorial Golf Tournament. It recognizes a business that has made significant investments in local youth and their activities over the past year.

The chamber has also added a Business of the Year award, which will be drawn from one of the winners of the other 11 awards.

Nominations are due on Dec. 16 and can be found at the chamber’s office or website.

“The judging for this all takes place with a sister chamber in North Battleford. They do the judging for us so nobody from town has any say, there's no bias,” Fitzpatrick said.

The awards ceremony takes place on Wednesday, March 18, 2020.
