The Local First Awards
Sep 27, 2018 09:21PM
Think Local First supports locally-owned businesses as they create more prosperous, connected and entrepreneurial communities. It matters where people choose to spend their money. Opting to support locally owned, independent businesses creates a positive effect, often referred to as a ‘multiplier effect,’ which is credited with enhancing social and civic well-being, is linked to higher wages, and reduces inequality while strengthening the middle class.
An independent judging panel composed of local business and community leaders, activists, journalists and citizens select nominees for seven award categories. Those nominees are then vetted and finalists are publicized.
