Business Awards

Annual Business Awards

The Kensington Chamber of Commerce’s Business Awards takes place each year during the fall. A call for nominations goes out during the summer months, allowing members to nominate those businesses and individuals they believe are deserving. A committee consisting of Board members and Chamber members then chooses the winners for each category. Nominees must be members in good standing with the Kensington and Area Chamber of Commerce. Nominees from the previous year will be considered for the award for a second year.
