The Stettler Regional Board of Trade is inviting nominations for exceptional businesses and citizens to be celebrated and honoured at the annual Stettler Business and Citizenship Awards Gala on Oct. 24th at the Stettler Community Hall.

Nominations for businesses and citizens, under various categories, can be made for the 2019 awards gala up until Sept. 15th, said Donna Morris, of the Stettler Regional Board of Trade.

“Come celebrate what your community is all about,” she said. “A lot of people don’t realize what goes on behind the scenes, and how a business came to be a business, and what it took to stay in business; it’s quite humbling to be honest.”

Anyone can nominate a citizen or business to be recognized for the upcoming awards gala with nomination forms for both business awards, and citizen of the year awards, posted to the Stettler Regional Board of Trade’s web site.

Those nominations will be passed over to a confidential committee made up of board members, executives, and community members.

Morris explains that the nomination process is certainly not strenuous.

“Don’t be nervous to nominate,” she said. “Some people think this is a long process and it isn’t. It’s a small paragraph telling the committee what you are nominating for and why you feel they should be recognized. It does not have to be in great detail,” Morris said, adding that businesses and citizens are permitted to nominate themselves.

“Be proud of what you’re doing.”

The Stettler Business and Citizenship Awards Gala has been going on for many years, dating back before 1965.

There are many categories, including the Citizen of the Year for a male and female, Youth Citizen of the Year, Business of the Year, Small Business of the Year, and New Business of the Year, just to name a few.

Tickets are available for the gala for $50 each or $350 for a table. The evening will feature a catered supper and entertainment.

“This is a prestigious event that celebrates the accomplishments of businesses and citizens,” Morris said.
