The ninth annual Wisconsin Family Business of the Year Award is accepting nominations from businesses throughout the state. The award celebrates companies that exemplify the family spirit of doing
business together for everyone’s success.
Since the beginning of the program, 58 family-owned companies have been recognized for their contributions to their communities, their industries and the economy.
One family business will be selected for Grand Awards in each category of small (under 50 employees), medium (50-99), and large (100 or more) companies. Special awards will also be given to companies excelling in a particular area. Self-nominations are encouraged, or nominations can be made on behalf of the company by consultants, vendors, clients or friends. An independent panel of judges will select the award recipients. The deadline for nominations is April 13.
