Seward Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Cindy Clock announced earlier this week that the chamber has started taking nominations for its annual community awards, including “Person of the Year,” “Business Person of the Year,” “Business of the Year,” and the new “Outstanding Community Service.”

Individuals interested in recommending a business or an individual for one of the awards should complete a nomination form and return it to the chamber office by December 15. Individual letters of support will also be accepted with each nomination form.

The recipients of the 2017 awards will be announced on January 18, 2018, at the Seward Resort.

To be eligible for “Person of the Year” honors, an individual must have resided in Alaska for at least 10 years and be active in community or civic affairs. Those nominated for the “Business Person of the Year” should be a current member of the Seward Chamber of Commerce and have stimulated economic development in Seward through business activity. The “Business Site Improvement” award is presented to a chamber member firm that has enhanced, or remodeled its place of business.

Last year, David Paperman was the chamber’s choice as “Person of the Year.” Kerri Romig, the owner of Frontier Trading Post, was the Business Person of the Year recipient. The 2016 Business of the Year was Samson Tug and Barge, and the new Outstanding Community Service plaque was presented to the American Legion Auxiliary.
