The Washington Excellence Awards and the Manufacturing Excellence Awards are two ways AWB recognizes excellence in business. Nominate a business you know or submit your entry today.

We believe that Washington is a globally competitive state built on a solid foundation of innovation, a world-class workforce, and a quality of place second to none. In support of this mission, we invite you to participate in our annual awards program.

As the state’s chamber of commerce and manufacturing association, we represent all businesses in our state and want to recognize and promote the kind of excellence in business that creates prosperity for all. So even if your favorite business is not an AWB member, you can still nominate them for these prestigious, statewide awards. Employers are also encouraged to enter self-nominations.
