• Annual Business Awards

  • The Annual SLU Business & Community Awards were established in 2008 to recognize individuals, organizations and companies that contribute in a meaningful way to the improvement and success of our community.

    How are winners selected?

    Each year a committee organized by the SLU Chamber nominates 10 business in each of seven categories. Nominees do not have to be involved with the SLU Chamber. They are chosen based on demonstration of participation in, support of, or good works in/for the community. This can take the form of community events, fundraisers, donations to local causes, advocacy on community issues, community improvement projects, etc. These works must demonstrate that the organization is committed to helping South Lake Union succeed as a community. Organizations that have won in the previous two years cannot be nominated. If you'd like to participate in the Nomination Committee or recommend an organization to be nominated, contact:  director@sluchamber.org

    Nominees are then put out for public vote. Voting is open for several weeks and anyone can vote; however, same day duplicate votes will not be counted. Once voting has closed the top three vote getters in each category become the Finalists. Each finalist is highlighted at the event where WINNERS ARE ANNOUNCED LIVE!
