The West Seattle Chamber of Commerce is seeking nominees for its annual Westside Awards, to be presented next month, and the deadline’s almost here. These are the categories:

Westside Business of the Year – This nominee has been in business at least 3 years and demonstrated business excellence and success.

Westside Emerging Business – This nominee business has been in operations for less than 3 years but is meeting the challenges of a growing business through leadership.

Westside Not-For-Profit of the Year – This nominee non-profit is making our community a better place to live while contributing to community benefit through their mission.

Westsider of the Year – This nominee is making a lasting impact on our community and the lives of others or is an up-coming community role model.

West Seattle Chamber membership is NOT required to be part of this, as a nominator or nominee. Just go here to nominate a business or person; the Chamber is asking for nominations to be in by Friday.

(Disclosure – WSB belongs to the Chamber, as a local business, and was honored to be recipient of the Business of the Year award in 2010. The past four years’ winner lists are on the Chamber website; go here to see our coverage of last year’s Westside Awards.)


  1. i just took a glance at the online form to nominate, but am unclear as to the parameters for nomination.

    Am I correct reading this as only “professionals” can be nominated? Retired folks, full-time volunteers etc. are not eligible?

    Thanks for the clarification.

  2. Last year’s Westsider of the Year was Lauren Englund, who hatched the West Seattle Bee Garden idea. That’s all I can offer to that.

  4. Who is the guy that punched out the hooli on the bus that tried to rob him of his phone? Westsider? He gets my vote.
