Nominations Open For Celebrate Business Awards


The achievements and accomplishments of our local businesses help make our community a desired place to live, work and play. As a staunch advocate for the success of local business, the Lincoln Chamber of Commerce is proud to recognize those businesses who continue to make the greatest impact in our community and go above and beyond when it comes to their contributions to Lincoln.

Our 26th Annual Celebrate Business Awards event takes place on December 7 at the Lincoln Marriott Cornhusker Hotel and will showcase this year’s most visionary and community-driven businesses and individuals. While challenges remain for the rest of 2021 and beyond, it is commendable how Lincoln businesses have stepped up to the plate and made our community a better place despite unprecedented challenges and circumstances. More work remains, but one thing is for sure—Lincoln businesses are resilient and improve our community through their impactful actions and practices.

This year, we will honor businesses and individuals that excel in several different areas and contribute to Lincoln’s thriving and innovative business climate. From our Cornerstone Award that recognizes unparalleled community leadership to the Small Business of the Year Award honoring businesses that best exemplify the spirit of free enterprise in Lincoln, all of our awards represent what makes Lincoln special – the people. Their contributions and actions touch our lives in ways that we often take for granted, which is why we want to properly congratulate and thank them for all they do. 

The 2020 winners truly represented the best of business in Lincoln, and we look forward to applauding our 2021 recipients in December as we celebrate the numerous success stories of Lincoln’s business spirit. 

Nominations can be submitted at We are eager to congratulate our 2021 winners and look ahead to what is in store for the future of Lincoln, both for our amazing businesses and our community.
