Wyman will choose one large and one small corporation from among the public’s nominations this summer. 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. An awards ceremony will be held in Wyman’s office later that month.
Last fall, Jim’s Pharmacy in Port Angeles and TreeTop in Selah were selected from a statewide pool of nominees as Corporations for Communities 2012 Award recipients.
