Community Achievement Awards Gala

In 1967, the Stoney Creek Chamber initiated its first Citizen of the Year Award.  Since then, the recognition has been expanded to recognize great citizens and businesses that have distinguished themselves with outstanding contributions to our community.  

Citizen of the Year – The Citizen of the Year award is presented to an individual who continually gives of themselves and helps many others in the process. Their outstanding contributions to Stoney Creek in community service and volunteering define excellence in character and contribute to improving the lives of our citizens.

Junior Citizen of the Year – The Junior Citizen of the Year Award is presented to young people for their outstanding contributions to the community, and within their school.

Outstanding Small Business (1-24 employees) and Outstanding Large Business (25+ employees)
The Outstanding Business Achievement Awards recognize outstanding local businesses and are presented to companies that stand out in our community as a leader.  These companies demonstrate outstanding business practices, excellence in community relations, sustainable growth and quality customer service
