The Downtown Vernon Association is seeking nominations from DVA members and the public for the 2014 Spirit Award.

“We want to honour a business for its outstanding contributions to the downtown business community over the last year and its commitment to customers over the long-term,” said Lara Konkin, DVA executive director.

“The award recipient should demonstrate a tangible impact on the business community and have a history of participation in community activities.”

Konkin encourages the public to come forward with nominations for a business they feel has raised the bar regarding business appearance, image, distinctiveness, service and adds to the atmosphere in the core.

In order to qualify for nomination, the business must be part of downtown’s business improvement area. Past nominees include Nolan’s Pharmasave, Briteland Holdings, Nixon Wenger, the Starting Block and Vernon Teach and Learn.
