Spotlight Media was honored to be in the top three businesses for the Small Business of the Year ChamberChoice Award.

Last month, about 800 people gathered at the Ramada Plaza & Suites for the Fargo Moorhead West Fargo Chamber of Commerce’s ChamberChoice Awards. The annual event recognized the accomplishments of the business community by honoring its leaders for their achievements.

The 2016 ChamberChoice Awards had a record-breaking 650 nominations and 58 candidates. From the candidates, three finalists were named in six categories: Small Business of the Year, Business of the Year, Small Not-for-Profit of the Year, Not-for-Profit of the Year, Entrepreneur of the Year and Young Professionals Best Place to Work. The winners were then unveiled at the luncheon on May 20. Finalists and winners were selected by a panel of independent judges from the regional business community, who evaluated accomplishments in the areas of business growth, innovation, creativity, community involvement and unique achievements relating to a specific business or industry.

Even though Spotlight Media didn’t take the win, it was proud to be named a finalist among other exceedingly accomplished and successful businesses.
