Submitted by Engage for Good

March 30, 2021 /CSRwire/ - Halo Award finalists chosen from a record number of entries were announced today in this annual celebration of work at the intersection of cause and commerce.

Now in its 19th year, the Halo Awards are North America’s highest honor for corporate social impact initiatives that successfully engage consumers and/or employees.

"The pandemic led to many meaningful and purposeful efforts by North American companies – an amazing 35% of all 208 entries were in the COVID-19 Initiative category" said David Hessekiel, president of Engage for Good, which produces the annual competition. "This year’s Halo finalists demonstrate the innovative ways that companies and causes joined forces in 2020 to create impact, even though the coronavirus shut down so much normal commercial activity."

Forty-one campaigns were announced today as finalists in 10 Halo Award categories. A Gold and Silver Halo Award winner will be announced in each category at the 2021 Virtual Engage for Good Conference May 25-27th. Please join us in congratulating these finalists:
