US Chamber Citizens Awards

May 21, 2020


U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation - Corporate Citizenship Center




Now in its 21st year, the Citizens Awards recognize businesses for the difference they make in communities around the world—in times of crisis and every day.

For years, businesses have mobilized their resources, expertise, and talent to help solve society's greatest challenges. Today, businesses are on the frontlines of the COVID-19 response.

The pandemic has spurred unparalleled agility, ingenuity, and collaboration from the private sector. Now more than ever, it is important to highlight the extraordinary contributions companies are making in the fight against this pandemic, as well as their continued efforts to address everyday issues that exist in communities.

We understand that many of you have stepped into new roles, are transitioning to new workplace environments, and balancing self and family care. That is why the Citizens Awards nomination deadline has been extended to Friday, July 10.

There is no fee to submit a nomination, and no limit for the number of nominations a business can complete. Awards are given in eight categories. See the full list of categories here.

We look forward to receiving your nominations and showcasing how businesses everywhere are stepping up to tackle the most pressing issues of our time and help our communities thrive. For any questions, please reach out to
