This prestigious event recognizes excellence in the local business community by naming recipients for awards in Excellence in Customer Service, Curb Appeal, Non-Profit Achievement, Community Caring, and the Stu Johnston Business of the Year Award. This year we had added a new category for Innovation in Business.
The Siuslaw Awards also recognizes two outstanding individuals in the community by honoring them with the Future First Citizen Award and the First Citizen Award. The First Citizen Award recognizes that individual who has given selflessly to the community based on community involvement, leadership and overall community impact.
