Sterlings Award
Business Award
Awarded By:
Scottsdale Area Chamber of Commerce
2005
See More
Each year, the Scottsdale Area Chamber of Commerce's Sterling Awards honors companies that demonstrate the best in business, innovation and community stewardship.

The prestigious Sterling Award is one of the most coveted business awards in the Valley, with a rigorous application, judging and selection process. Four teams of 6 judges each conduct an initial review of all applications and narrow the field to three finalists in each category. Once the finalists are identified, the judging teams visit those companies to conduct a personal interview and get a behind-the-scenes look at the operations. Once that step is complete, each judge independently casts a set of points for the finalists based on their embodiment of the award criteria. The points are tallied and the results remain secret until the day of the event.

This award presentation and luncheon was held at the Phoenician Resort, Scottsdale, Arizona with 500 attendees.
