About the Chamber's Annual Banquet

The Sidney Area Chamber of Commerce and Agriculture Annual Awards Banquet begins at 6:00 pm on January 21, 2019 at the Richland County Fairgrounds Event Center. Enjoy a buffet-style fajita bar catered by Mucho Si 2 Mexican Restaurant, an assortment of beverages, and entertainment throughout the evening. 

The Awards

Six awards are given out to deserving businesses and individuals in the following categories:

  • Agriculture - Given each year to an individual or business that has made an impact on Agriculture either through its promotion or development of farming and ranching. This award is chosen by the Chamber Agriculture Committee. Past winners have been responsible for decisions and programs that have moved our area forward to a leadership position in the national agriculture scene.
  • Educator of the Year - Selected by a joint School and Chamber committee from the nominees submitted by the principals of each school. The selection criterion includes not only the nominee’s ability as an educator, but also their written responses to a questionnaire, their involvement in extra-curricular activities, and the community.
  • Entrepreneur - One of two awards chosen by the Chamber membership to recognize an individual or business who has been successful at least one year in their new venture, going beyond the ordinary to capture the public’s attention.
  • Horizon - Given to a business that has been in existence for more than 5 years, that keeps on breaking new ground and moving forward. This is the second of the membership nominated awards, and one that has so many deserving to be honored.
  • Sunrise Spirit - Meant to honor an individual or group that has given outstanding service to the Sidney community.
  • Partner in Progress - For special recognition of people who have given just a little more of themselves to the community.
  • Past President - Given to the outgoing chamber Board President to signify the end of their term by the oncoming president.
