Blue Ribbon Awards

Each year, the Tahoe Chamber spends an evening recognizing and celebrating outstanding South Lake Tahoe businesses and organizations.

The Blue Ribbon Awards were created in 2007 to honor excellence in business on the South Shore. The awards program recognizes businesses, organizations, and individuals for achievements, community contributions, and milestones. It is one of the largest business awards program on the South Shore bringing together over 300 local business leaders, entrepreneurs, organizations, community members and government officials.

Introducing new award categories, the Tahoe Chamber will solicit nominations in eight key categories that represent the breadth of business on the South Shore. Each nomination is carefully considered by the Blue Ribbon Awards Committee and after weighing each nomination against the award criteria. The Blue Ribbon Awards position nominees and finalists as leaders in their industry and offer unparalleled opportunities to spotlight organizations before an audience of business and civic leaders.
