The Awards Criteria

Other considerations:
Alliance Nominations committee judges take into consideration many different aspects of a business owner's story. Business performance, growth and economic impact are very important, but the challenges and adversities a nominee has overcome on the road to success are considered as well. The nominee's demonstrated commitment to community involvement is of great importance also. Details are important, so please take the time to provide specific examples in reply to all questions contained in the nominations package. Judges are as equally interested in the story behind the successful business, as they are in the fact that the business is successful.
