Deadline Approaching To Apply For Celebrate Business Awards

August 24, 2015

The deadline for applications for the Greater Des Moines Partnership’s annual Celebrate Business Awards is fast approaching on Wednesday, Sept. 2. Area businesses are encouraged to apply. The Celebrate Business Awards promote the development of the Greater Des Moines (DSM) business community by publicly acknowledging unique and enduring business initiatives. 

The awards recognize companies for specific business practices, such as building a reputation for integrity and quality while remaining outside the public limelight or encouraging involvement in community activities. Small- and large-business winners are selected annually in several categories, which include: Best Kept Secret; Community Champion; Life Long Learning; Innovation; and Best Workplace for Young Professionals.

 Expanding or new businesses are also recognized each year with the Economic Impact Awards to commemorate the impact a company has had on the local economy in terms of job creation, capital investment and facility expansion. 

The 2015 Celebrate Business Awards are sponsored by the Greater Des Moines Partnership, Des Moines Business Record, Simpson College and Young Professionals Connection, an initiative of the Partnership. To apply, visit DSMpartnership.com/Events. Honorees will be recognized at a celebratory luncheon on Wednesday, Nov. 4, and featured in an autumn issue of the Des Moines Business Record.
