Are you proud of your business? Maybe you've invested in new equipment. Maybe you have a record of going above-and-beyond when it comes to customer service. Or maybe you just take pride in the jobs you provide here in Erie and the commitment you've made to the community.
Whether you work for or run a business or a nonprofit, there are a lot of ways to demonstrate your Commitment to Erie.
We invite you to tell the story of your business or organization and apply for the 8th annual Commitment to Erie Awards, sponsored by the Erie Times-News and GoErie.com.
This isn't strictly a popularity contest. It's your story that will set you apart. Your entries will be judged by a team of judges made of journalists from the Erie Times-News and past and current faculty of areas universities.
Finalists and winners will be honored at a banquet to be held Sept. 19 at Erie's Bayfront Convention Center. Winners, who will be judged in separate categories for small and large businesses, will be presented with original pieces of artwork commissioned by the Erie Times-News.
Whether you are a new business or an old one, we want to hear how your story.
But time is running out. The deadline for applications is July 5.
Please send applications to www.goerie.com/cte. For questions, contact business writer Jim Martin at 870-1668.
