Program to honor centennial businesses

Secretary of State Deb Markowitz put out a call for nominations for the 2008 Vermont Centennial Business Awards. This program honors businesses that have operated in Vermont for at least 100 years and is a joint project of the Secretary of States office, the Vermont Chamber of Commerce, and the Vermont Business Magazine. Markowitz said, Any business that has been in operation in Vermont for 100 years or more can participate in the awards program by filling out an application form and providing verification of its business start date." Vermont's centennial businesses will be presented with a plaque at an awards ceremony in March. It is important to recognize Vermont's businesses for their longevity," said Markowitz. It takes a tremendous amount of dedication to keep a business active for 100 years. The Vermont Centennial Business Award acknowledges Vermont's oldest businesses for enriching our economic heritage. This program deepens our understanding of how Vermont's businesses have enhanced our community life during the last hundred years. The deadline for applications is Jan. 11. For more information about the awards program and to obtain an application, contact Ginny Colbert at 802-828-2148 or gcolbert@sec.state.vt.us or visit the Vermont Centennial Business Awards page on the Secretary of State's web site: http://www.sec.state.vt.us/centennial_business.html
