HOW CAN I HELP TO SPREAD THE GOOD WORD?
Share the nominations period with everyone. Use e-mail, social media, print and put up this poster, send a carrier pigeon - whatever method you like to remind people that this is the time to recognize amazing businesses in our region.
I’D LIKE TO NOMINATE A BUSINESS, HOW DO I DO THAT?
This is a great way to recognize your favourite local business(es). Click on the category below that you would like to nominate a business in, or pop over to webpage for people to vote on, provide a few words about why the business deserves to be nominated in that category (this information helps us select the finalists) and Presto! You’re done. We pass your submission along to the nominated company, so that they can share and celebrate the acknowledgement with their team. They may then be selected as a finalist!
WHAT ARE THE ELIGIBILITY
In order to be eligible for nomination for any of the award categories the nominee must be located within the region of Prince Rupert and surrounding communities. Qualified candidates are encouraged to nominate themselves (after all, no one knows your business better than you) or you may nominate any qualified individual, or business for any of the award categories. These awards are open to all businesses whether or not they are a Chamber Member.
HOW ARE THE FINALISTS
The selections committee takes on the daunting task of selecting the finalists by scoring each nominee against the criteria and spirit of each award.
