2020 Beacon Awards to Take Place April 20 in Algoma

The 2020 Beacon Awards celebration will be held April 20 at Hotel Stebbins in Algoma. Nominations are being sought for the “Tower” Business Award, for a business that shows leadership in the business community while also having a positive effect on the community; the “Lighthouse” Award, for a volunteer or community member who has made significant contributions to the Algoma area; the “Lantern” Education Award for an educator or school employee who has gone above and beyond to meet the needs of students, peers or the education community; the “Rising Star” Award for a new company or community member of note who has had an impact on the local business community; and the “Rose” Improvement Recognition for a business that has made notable improvements to its place of business.

“The very definition of beacon – that of being a source of light or inspiration – truly characterizes the individuals and businesses that are nominated,” said Kay Smith, executive director of the Algoma Area Chamber of Commerce. “We are very excited to have the opportunity to honor them.” 

Nominations are open until March 31. To nominate a business or individual, visit
