OLYMPIA — Companies that give back to the community can now be nominated for one of the state’s highest civics award.
Secretary of State Kim Wyman announced last week that her office is now accepting nominations for the 2013 Corporations for Communities Award. The nomination deadline is Aug. 31 and winners will be announced in October.
Begun in 2009, the CofC program has recognized state businesses that have helped improve local or regional social and environmental conditions. One large and one small corporation from around the state will be chosen this summer from the public’s nominations.
Anyone can nominate businesses for the award, said Wyman. Nominees need to be registered with the state and in compliance with state and federal laws.
