The Bluebird Business Awards Program is an annual business community event created to help showcase the impact and vital role that businesses play in the overall development of our community. Below are the award categories, information on the nomination process, and established criteria for measuring and defining excellence. Award winners set themselves apart from the competition and are outstanding representatives of the best our City has to offer. Businesses are recognized for their creativity, vitality, stability and relevance. Equally important in selecting winners are civic involvement and responsiveness, demonstrated commitment to the advancement of the Ellisville business community, corporate responsibility, employee recognition and excellence in service. Self-nomination is encouraged, as well as nominations from business peers, customers, support organizations, and other parties positively impacted by the business. Winners will be announced at the Annual Bluebird Business Awards evening event held on Thursday, November 3, 2022.
