Nominations for a 2014 Corporations for Communities Award deadline approaching

Time is running out to offer nominations for a 2014 Corporations for Communities Award. The nomination deadline is August 31.

Do you know a Washington corporation or business that contributes to your community? It could be providing volunteer help on projects, or donating money or supplies, or something else that makes a positive difference.

If you know of one, you can help give it some well-deserved recognition by nominating it for our state’s highest civics award.

Nomination forms can be found at http://www.sos.wa.gov/corps/corpsforcommunities/ .

Secretary of State Kim Wyman will choose one large and one small corporation from among the public’s nominations. Winners will receive a National Association of Secretaries of State Medallion, the highest civics honor that the state awards.  Runners-up will also be recognized.

Anyone can nominate businesses for the award. Any for-profit corporation, Limited Liability Corporation (LLC) or Limited Partnership is eligible for the award. Nominees need to be registered with the Office of Secretary of State and be in compliance with state and federal laws.

Winners will be announced by early October, with an awards ceremony taking place in Wyman’s office later that month.

For more information about the awards program, contact program coordinator Patrick Reed at (360) 725-0358 or patrick.reed@sos.wa.gov.
