We received over 80 nominations for our 19th Annual Awards of Excellence this year!
The judging panel had to make some difficult decisions, and scores were extremely close at times.
Given the high volume of nominations that we received and challenging decisions that the judges were faced with, some of the awards categories have more than three finalists.
