Young Entrepreneur Recognition Award

The Whitehorse Chamber of Commerce has been witnessing the development of many young entrepreneurs in Whitehorse during the last few years. We would like to recognize the efforts of one of these young entrepreneurs in establishing a business. The young entrepreneur should between the ages of 19 - 30, have been in operation at least 1 year, and show what it takes to be successful: motivation, dedication, energy, inspiration, and innovation.

Service and Customer Satisfaction Award

A big part of the success of many businesses is the service and customer satisfaction they provide to their customers. When we visit an office, a dentist, a bank or any business, we form opinions very quickly about the level of service and customer satisfaction that we receive. The perception of value is also very closely related to the service we receive in a business. This award goes to that business which has excelled in the area of Service and Customer Satisfaction.

Giving Back to the Community Award

Many organizations like the Whitehorse Chamber of Commerce, schools, sporting groups, and the Arts and Cultural Community rely on the generosity of the business community in their fundraising efforts. Our business community is very generous in their support of these groups and gladly sponsor the many events held in Whitehorse throughout the year. This award recognizes just one of these businesses that has given back to the community by supporting events, programs, projects, sports teams or has just been there for those in need of help.
