Washtenaw Indie Awards!
This is the communities opportunity to speak up and honor the small independently owned businesses that are the fabric of our community. If you have an opinion of who should be recognized as an exceptional business, this is your moment to nominate them! Here are the categories:
The Washtenaw Soul Award: A business that represents the unique spirit of Washtenaw County by celebrating diversity, creativity, is confident in their individuality and supports their community.

The Big Leap Award: A business that "took the leap" and successfully created a new idea, model, or solution despite all the risks. 
The Hidden Gem Award: This is a great business that is overlooked and more people should know about.
Community care award: This non-profit stands out for the clarity of its mission, the dedication of its volunteers, and its long-term impact to the citizens at large.
