Nominate businesses with outstanding community service records for a state Corporations for Communities Award, the highest civics award in the state.
Find the nomination form at the Secretary of State website. Nominate businesses by Oct. 15.
Secretary of State Sam Reed started the program last year to recognize local businesses for making a difference in the Evergreen State.
Officials will announce the winners — a small corporation and a large corporation — in November. Winners receive a National Association of Secretaries of State Medallion.
Reed honored Issaquah developer Rowley Properties through the program last fall.
“This is an opportunity to encourage and recognize standout corporations that choose to make their community a priority,” Reed said in a news release. “With our state still facing tough economic times, it’s important to point out and honor businesses that are giving an extra effort to make a difference in Washington.”
