(Medicine Hat) – The Medicine Hat & District Chamber of Commerce is pleased to announce that nominations for the 2021 Business Awards are officially open. On Friday, October 22, 2021, this prestigious awards presentation will celebrate National Small Business Week, which runs from October 17 -23, 2021. 

'Our Business Awards are always an event that we look forward to, but this year we are more excited than ever to celebrate and honour our business community,' stated Chamber of Commerce President Marcus Campbell. 'This past year challenged our community, and it's been difficult, but we have seen our businesses rise to the occasion and are inspired by acts of everyday heroism in our community. These awards will allow us the opportunity to recognize and celebrate the hidden business heroes within our community.' 

The Chamber has chosen the theme 'Celebrating the Hero Within' for the 2021 Business Awards to shine a light on the vision, resilience, generosity, knowledge and adaptability that businesses have shown as they've faced the unprecedented challenges of a global pandemic.

'On the outside, they appear ordinary, but business heroes walk amongst us every day,' explained Campbell. 'Over the past year, everyday acts of heroism protected our community, and we saw business owners, employers, and employees selflessly prioritize the safety of each other and the community. The heroes within Medicine Hat & District chose the power of compassion, strength and resilience to fuel their actions.'

Over the years, the scope of these awards has grown from recognizing the Small Business and Large Business of the Year to the 15 awards, including the 'Award of Excellence,' presented as the evening's final award.
