Time is running out for the public to offer nominations for a 2013 Corporations for Communities Award. The nomination deadline is August 31.

Nomination forms can be found on the Secretary of State’s website here.

Secretary of State Kim Wyman will choose one large and one small corporation from among the public’s nominations. Her selections will receive a National Association of Secretaries of State Medallion, the highest civics honor that the state awards.

Anyone can nominate businesses for the award. Any for-profit corporation, Limited Liability Corporation (LLC) or Limited Partnership is eligible for the award. Nominees need to be registered with the Office of Secretary of State and must be in compliance with state and federal laws.

Winners will be announced by early October, with an awards ceremony taking place in Wyman’s office later that month.

For more information about the awards program, contact program coordinator Patrick Reed at (360) 725-0358 or patrick.reed@sos.wa.gov.
