With the 2018 WMBEXA nomination period having closed on December 18th, representatives from the Prairie Sky Chamber of Commerce spent the last few days before Christmas delivering good news to business owners in the region.  Over 100 nominations were received for this years’ five awards categories that include the Customer Service, Community Involvement, New Business of the Year, Non-Profit of the Year and Business of the Year.  It was truly an honor to be able to brighten the day of local business owners with the news of their nomination.  Many were completely surprised and some were even brought to tears.  They all were very humbled that people took time to recognize them for their hard work.  To see photos of the nominees, click HERE.
