The Inspire Awards 2021

Presented by the Chamber's Women Leadership Committee, the Inspire Awards will celebrate individuals who have gone above and beyond to create a positive impact on the lives of others through their leadership in the workplace and/or involvement in the community.

The Annual Inspire Awards is the feel-good event of the year! There are five categories to be nominated for and are as follows:

  • An individual in Business that inspires others.
  • An individual in a Non-profit that inspires others.
  • A first responder (EMT, Firefighter, Police Officer, etc.) that inspires.
  • An individual that inspires our youth.
  • An inspiring youth (Age 21 and under)

You do not have to be a Chamber member to win an Inspire Award, but you must be a Chamber member to nominate an individual.
