COLUMBUS, Ohio (PRWEB) February 27, 2018
Better Business Bureau’s (BBB) Center for Character Ethics is now accepting entries and nominations for the 2018 Spark Awards – a Torch Award for Entrepreneurship.
The Spark Awards is a BBB recognition award presented by BBB’s Center for Character Ethics. In coordination with the Torch Awards for Ethics TRUST! Principles, the Spark Awards entries are evaluated based on three key categories: character, culture and community. The Spark Awards recognizes millennial entrepreneurial organizations whose leaders demonstrate a higher level of character, generate a culture that is authentic, and connect with their community.
The 2018 Spark Awards Class will be honored and the finalists will be presented with their awards the week of May 7th, during TechStars Columbus Startup Week. The 2018 Spark Awards Class and this year’s finalists will also be involved with telling their stories during simultaneous BBB and Center events throughout the year, and will be recognized at the 2018 Torch Awards for Ethics event in the fall.
