The Better Business Bureau’s Center for Character Ethics is fielding nominations for its annual Spark Awards.

The awards recognize organizations whose leaders demonstrate a higher level of character, generate a culture that is authentic, and connect with their community. For-profit and non-profit organizations whose owners are under 35 OR that have been operational for less than three years are eligible.

Entries and applicants will be evaluated by a volunteer panel of judges to select three winning leaders.

The 2020 Spark Awards Class will be recognized at special event IGNITE! on Thursday, April 9. The event will include a pitch competition hosted by the SunDown Group. Cash prizes will be awarded to the evening’s winners and the Spark Awards recipients will be asked to tell their stories during BBB events throughout the year.

The deadline for application is Friday, March 6. For more information and to fill out an nomination form, visit
