"Our dynamic business community represents many different industries and areas of expertise," the chamber's news release states. "The chamber looks to cast a spotlight on those businesses that help strengthen our community by serving as leaders within their industry. Perhaps it's a well-known local business or maybe an unsung hero. Either way, the Business Spotlight Awards is an opportunity to highlight a business that deserves recognition."
