[December 17, 2009]  The Lincoln/Logan County Chamber of Commerce invites you to recognize Logan County's "best of show" through the chamber's Pride & Progress Awards program. Nominations will be accepted through the end of the year to celebrate the achievements of chamber members in the continued development and improvement of Logan County.

RestaurantThe awards are sponsored by the chamber's executive committee. This campaign is designed to recognize outstanding achievement and promote positive awareness. For every parcel of rundown property, for every stagnant business and for every inactive citizen, there are many examples of positive contribution, action, impact and involvement that deserve to be acknowledged.

Awards will be presented during the chamber's annual dinner on Jan. 23. All nominations are due by Jan. 2. Awards are being given out for Small Business of the Year (50 or fewer employees), Large Business of the Year (more than 50 employees), New Business of the Year, Volunteer of the Year, Beautification and Excellence in Service. To be eligible to receive one of the above awards, businesses or individuals must be a member of the Lincoln/Logan County Chamber of Commerce in good standing.

The Excellence in Service Award is new this year and is awarded for a business that demonstrates a commitment to the community, to its customers and its employees 100 percent of the time.

Pride & Progress winners from the annual dinner in 2009: Small Business of the Year, Christian Child Care; Large Business of the Year, Lincoln College; Mike Abbott Volunteer of the Year, Roy Logan and Marcia Greenslate; Beautification Award, Best Western Lincoln Inn; and New Business of the Year, Hampton Inn.

Nominations can be made by contacting the chamber at 217-735-2385, at 1555 Fifth St. or at Visit the Web site for complete contest details along with complete chamber membership listings.
