2021 Awards of Excellence Finalists Announced!

Over 150 nominations were received for the Kawartha Chamber of Commerce & Tourism’s 21st Annual Awards of Excellence! With the largest number of nominations yet, some very difficult decisions had to be made by the judging panel. Almost all the categories received nominations in the double digits. This speaks volumes for all the wonderful businesses, organizations and individuals in this region that display excellence, especially during this difficult time!

All nominees, whether they are a finalist or not, should feel very proud. Due to the high number of nominations and difficult decisions, the judges have chosen more than three finalists in some categories.
