The Heartbeat of Pittsburg

The Pittsburg Area Chamber of Commerce exists to provide leadership that drives economic and community growth through collaborative partnerships.

The Small Business of the Year and Educator of the Year Awards are designed to honor and reward a local small business and local teacher for their excellence.

One of the most exciting and rewarding experiences for a small business in the Pittsburg area is to be honored by peers for a job well done. In recognition of outstanding contributions to the economy and overall progress in Crawford County, BKD, LLP and the Pittsburg Area Chamber of Commerce proudly present the Small Business of the Year Award. Selection is based on evidence of successful operation of a business as well as significant contributions to the community.

Teachers play a vital role in the lives of our children and impact our community every day. The purpose of the “Educator of the Year” award is to recognize excellence in the teaching profession and to inform our community of the exceptional quality of instruction delivered in Crawford County. In recognition of outstanding educators in our area, Pitsco Education, and the Pittsburg Area Chamber of Commerce proudly present the Educator of the Year award. Selection is based on the teacher’s ability to inspire students of all backgrounds and abilities to reach their full potential.

Nominations may be made through an online form by February 18th, 2021.
