Know an award-worthy West Seattle business or citizen? Nominate now!

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.)

    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.

      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.

    Maybe one of the group folks will chime in. Thanks.

    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.

    I nominate Tracy Record, for her tireless devotion to the West Seattle Blog.

    I was thinking along the same lines, West Seattle Hipster. WSB for sure – Westsider of the Year!

Sorry, comment time is over.
