AUBURN, IN - Nominations for the Chamber’s Duesy Awards are open now through Wednesday, September 9. The community is invited to nominate their favorite business, professional, educator, or nonprofit. The nomination form is available online at dekalbchamberpartnership.com/duesys.

Each year the DeKalb Chamber Partnership recognizes area businesses, leaders, and educators with the DeKalb Awards for Excellence in Business Community and Education – also known as the Duesy’s. The Duesy's are a series of 8 awards designed to recognize those going above and beyond in our community. Categories include: Young Professional of the Year; Seasoned Professional of the Year; Educator of the Year; the Education Award; Nonprofit of the Year; Small Business of the Year; and Business of the Year.

To be eligible, nominees must be a Chamber member and cannot have won in the last 5 years. A list of previous winners is available on the nomination form. Nominations are pared down to just three finalists for each category.

One winner from each award will be announced at the Chamber’s Duesy Awards on Thursday, November 12th. This event will feature Taste of DeKalb, a silent auction, cash bar, and live music.
