Schoharie Economic Enterprise Corp. is looking for nominations for its second annual 2023 enlighten and aspire awards. Deadline for nominations is December 1. SEEC benefactors Dusty and Tom Putnam will present the awards, which recognize inspiring individuals and businesses, at the second annual “Toast of the Town” celebration on December 6, at 287 Main, Schoharie.
This event has been organized to celebrate and honor the work of individuals and organizations from every corner of the county who are essential to fostering economic growth in Schoharie County.
Enlighten Award:
The Enlighten Award honors an individual or company who has looked to fill the educational needs serving our community that will support resiliency for Schoharie County.
This person or group thinks outside of the box and builds creative bridges from real-world problems to long term solutions. The Enlighten Awardee may also be the champion of an informal cause or an intellectual movement.
Aspire Award:
The Aspire Award was created to recognize an individual or organization that has ascended or transcended in their industry.
This individual or group exemplifies best-practice efforts through demonstrated success and is inherently innovative. Always looking to instill hope, the Aspire Awardee fosters growth through their commitment to their craft, company and community prosperity.
All nominees will be recognized at the Toast to the Town celebration hosted by the Putnams, dedicated supporters of SEEC’s work.
“These unique awards are an opportunity to recognize the points of light in businesses, entrepreneurs, leaders and organizations that make up our community,” said honorary host and SEEC Board of Directors, Mr. Putnam.
“Dusty and I are proud to celebrate successes and the contributions of many who strive to grow our regional economy and work to build a more sustainable community.”
