The Heart of Seattle Awards Ceremony


SCROLL DOWN

The Heart of Seattle Awards Ceremony


The Chinook Book Heart of Seattle Awards recognize Seattle retail and service businesses that set a high bar for what good business should be. We look for local businesses with stellar social and environmental priorities, ethical business practices, happy employees, and loving customers.

Anyone is welcome to nominate a business who they think deserves to be recognized.

Nominees will be asked to apply using a robust questionnaire by category and based on the B Lab Impact Assessment and Chinook Book criteria, from which a group of finalists will be chosen by panel.

In 2018, we will submit the finalists to a vote by the community to see who will claim the Heart of Seattle Awards for each category. The winners will be revealed at the Heart of Seattle Awards Party in April 2018, an epic celebration featuring 25+ local food and beverage producers and restauranteurs.
