Indian Hills looking for Vision Awards nominations

Indian Hills Community College is looking for nominations for the second annual Vision Awards.

Awards will be given in five categories -- Business of the Year, New Business of the Year, Student Entrepreneur of the Year, Entrepreneurial Educator of the Year and Alumni Entrepreneur of the Year. In each of the categories, anyone living in Indian Hills' 10-county area are eligible, with the exception of the alumni award. Alumni can live anywhere, as long as they graduated from Indian Hills, to be eligible. Students from elementary age to college can be nominated for Student Entrepreneur of the Year.

The purpose of the awards and the dinner is to honor the people who make an impact on the community.

"Entrepreneurs are such a vital part of our local economy that we just wanted to do something to honor their contributions and help people recognize what they are contributing," said Ashley Moyer, RELI Coordinator for Leadership and Economic Development Initiatives. "So we started the Vision Awards last year, this April will be our second year and April 25th is going to be the celebration dinner where we'll be honoring all our winners and so right now, what we're really looking for is people to nomination their favorite entrepreneur."

Nominating someone is easy and takes just about ten minutes, all the information and the nomination form can be found here.

Tickets are also on sale for the dinner as well, individual tickets are $49, or a table for four can be purchased for $175 and a table of eight for $350.
