Mar. 03 /CSRwire/ - WASHINGTON, D.C.- March 3, 2008 - The U.S. Chamber of Commerce Business Civic Leadership Center (BCLC) is now accepting nominations from companies and chambers of commerce for its 9th annual Corporate Citizenship Awards. The awards recognize companies that have made extraordinary contributions to their communities and have excelled in promoting corporate values.

"In today's challenging environment, companies that go above and beyond the call of duty deserve to be recognized," said BCLC Executive Director Stephen Jordan. "These awards help raise awareness that many businesses care deeply about their communities and are committed to being a part of the solution to today's issues and challenges."

The 2008 Corporate Citizenship Awards encompass four categories:

  • Corporate Stewardship: For companies that exemplify the highest ideals of corporate citizenship through overall values, strategies, and operational practices; subcategories are designed for large businesses and small/midsize businesses

  • International Community Service: For a specific community service program outside of the U.S. that contributes to the positive development of the host country

  • Business-Nonprofit Partnership: For a company and a charitable organization that have worked together successfully to address an important social issue

    Award nominees must be members of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce. Companies, trade associations, and chambers may nominate themselves or be nominated by a third party. Submissions will be accepted until Friday, June 27, 2008 at 5 p.m. and must be sent via the nomination kit available on BCLC's website at www.uschamber.com/bclc/awards.
