Citizens Awards winner

Congratulations to the 21st Annual Citizens Awards Winners! Read their stories.

For 22 years, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation’s Citizens Awards have highlighted how businesses serve as a force for good, expanding opportunity and driving progress in every aspect of society.  

Over the last year, we have witnessed the power of business to solve our toughest problems. From delivering safe and effective vaccines at record speed, to helping students and teachers transition to remote learning, to creating jobs and opportunities for everyone to succeed, companies of every size and industry stepped up in extraordinary ways.  

As we look to the next stage of our recovery, we know businesses will continue to deliver bold solutions to ensure a healthy, sustainable and inclusive future for all.
