Our RPRS friend Alyssa Parker, Director of Communications at BBB of Eastern North Carolina, Inc., reached out last week to share these two awards opportunities with our membership. We believe all of our member organizations deserve as many opportunities as possible to celebrate their great work, so check out the two award categories now open for entries and if you win, please let us know so we can share in recognizing your organization, too!
BBB Torch Awards
The BBB Torch Awards for Marketplace Ethics honor companies and charities which demonstrate a high level of character and ensure the organizations’ practices meet the highest standards of ethics. BBB recognizes Torch Award winners and finalists in small, medium and large business size categories. Here is the link to the application.
BBB Spark Award
The BBB Spark Award is bestowed upon business leaders aged 35 and younger or new entrepreneurs of any age operating for less than three years who demonstrate Character, Culture, and Community. Here is the link to the application.
BBB Spark Award finalists, and ultimately the BBB Spark Award recipient, will be selected by a panel of judges representative of the business community of eastern North Carolina. All finalists will be designated as members of the 2021 BBB Spark Award Class.
Finalists and winners will receive publicity from BBB, awards, and inclusion in the 2021 Better Business Summit. The 2021 BBB Spark Award winner will also receive a $2,000 cash prize! Contact Alyssa Parker at 919-277-4220 or by email for additional information.
