Citizens Awards

Thank you to those who submitted nominations for the 21st Annual Citizens Awards. The portal is now closed. Finalists will be announced in September, so stay tuned!

Every day, the private sector serves as a powerful force for good in communities across the U.S. and in countries around the world. Since 2000, the Citizens Awards have highlighted how businesses are helping solve today’s greatest challenges and spearheading the transformation to a strong, healthy and sustainable future. From philanthropy to shared value to corporate social responsibility—the Citizens Awards honor the partnerships and organizations that leverage their resources, expertise, and talent to make a positive impact. 

Awards are given in eight categories. There is no fee to nominate and no limit for the number of nominations. Businesses of all sizes and chambers of commerce are eligible to apply. 

Winners will be announced at the 21st annual Citizens Awards, held in conjunction with the Corporate Citizenship Conference, on November 17-19, 2020. Save the date!

Sponsorship opportunities are available. Please contact Rebecca Mousseau at if interested.
