The BBB Spark Awards was established in 2019 to recognize the small businesses, startups and young professionals revitalizing the local business community. To be eligible, a business must have been established within the last three years or be run by an entrepreneur 35 years old or younger. Qualified applicants go through a written process of self-evaluation before a panel of judges. The judges name winners and finalists based on their dedication to ethics. The 2022 Spark Award Finalists were distinguished for their character-driven operations, exceptional workplace cultures and dedication to the community.
The winners and finalists of the Spark Awards will be honored at the upcoming Torch Awards for Ethics event on Thursday, Sept. 29, at The View at Mt. Adams. The winners of the Torch Awards and the recipients of the Thomas J. Klinedinst, Jr. Students of Integrity Scholarship will also be celebrated at the event.
