The Greater Ellettsville Area Chamber of Commerce, Inc. Annual Awards Program recognizes and celebrates the work, leadership and progress of its members and our community. Nominations will be accepted from chamber members, as well as the general public.
Award recipients will be selected by the Board of Directors of the Ellettsville Chamber of Commerce and honored at the Chamber’s Annual Meeting and Awards Ceremony in October.
Established in 2014, the Chamber’s Award of Excellence is given to a business or organization that provides an outstanding product or service in Ellettsville. The Chamber Award of Excellence recognizes a Chamber member that has demonstrated excellence in business affairs, while adding to the quality of life in the Ellettsville Community.
Previous Recipients: Chicago’s Pizza (2014), Bybee Stone Company (2015), HealthSource of Ellettsville (2015), Hoosier Family Eyecare (2016), Smithville (2016), The Peoples State Bank (2017)
Established in 2014, the Spirit of Maurice E. Endwright Award recognizes a person who demonstrates outstanding vision, dedication, service, and leadership resulting in the well being of all our citizens.
Once an individual receives the award, they are ineligible to receive it a second time. This award is established to recognize the contributions to our community of an individual over a period of time. A one-time action without continued involvement in the community would not make an individual eligible. The actions of an individual in the community should be considered a part of the individual’s service and leadership to the community.
Previous Recipients: Mary Ann Steinhagen (2014), Helen Ennis (2014), Jeana Kapczynski (2015), Chris Fisher (2016), Marty Hawk (2017)
