Ben TeKamp Memorial Award Call For Submissions

It's the last call if you know a business that should get an award for their hard work in the community.

The Employment and Education Centre is putting out a call for nominations - for the Ben TeKamp Memorial Award.

Executive Director Sue Watts says they're looking for a company that embodies the former Mayor.

"Perseverance, dedication, commitment to this community, innovation," she says. "All the things he embodied."

Watts says they're looking for new -- or re-invented businesses.

"A business who's been in the Brockville or Leeds and Grenville area for quite some time has to show how they're changing to meet the need."

Deadline for submissions is Monday - details can be found on the Employment Centre Website.
