Business of the Year (BOY) Awards
Business and Business Leader of the Year Awards Competition
Is Your Company a Business of the Year? You just might be. You don't need hundreds of employees or billions in income to apply. We are looking for companies that are financially sound, active in their communities and members of their local chambers. If this is you, read on and consider applying for this prestigious award. Businesses of all sizes have won in the past, and you could be next.
For 25 years, Business NH Magazine and the NH Association of Chamber of Commerce Executives have celebrated the NH Businesses of the Year and Business Leader of the Year.
Awards are given to one Business Leader of the Year and nine NH companies, one in each category:
• Business Services
• Business Assistance Organizations
• Financial Services/Insurance
• Health Care
• Real Estate/Construction/Engineering
*The 2019 nonprofit winner will receive an unrestricted $5,000 grant from the NH Charitable Foundation. This award is in tribute to Walter J. Dunfey.
The 2019 competition is now closed.
Winners will be announced in the May issue of Business NH Magazine and then celebrated at our Business of the Year awards on May 30 at the DoubleTree by Hilton in downtown Manchester.
The 2020 competition will be Business of the Decade and will only be open to past winners between 2011 and 2019.
Check back in September 2020 for the 2021 Business of the Year application!
