Every year, we ask our readers to nominate companies and individuals for honors in categories including Lifetime Achievement in Business and Entrepreneur of the Year.

Each nominee is put through an independent judging process. The top three finalists are profiled in the special publication in July, with the winner in each category announced at the annual banquet. The culmination of the evening is the announcement of the annual Lifetime Achievement in Business honoree, also selected by the outside judging panel.

Economic Impact honors are awarded in four categories based on years in business. 

Nominate a company that has a strong impact on the local economy.
