June 28, 2010 (San Diego) -- The San Diego Better Business Bureau (BBB) invites all local businesses, both large and small firms, to enter the 2010 Torch Award for Marketplace Ethics. The BBB's annual awards program honors companies that demonstrate ethical business practices. Both BBB members and non members, including for profits and non profits, are encouraged to enter the 13th annual Torch Awards competition, which matches businesses in similar size categories based on number of employees.
Deadline for entries is 5 p.m. on Wednesday, Sept. 1. Entry fee is $25, which will be earmarked exclusively for scholarship grants for high school students who write winning essays on the importance of marketplace ethics in our community.
The 2010 Torch Awards will be presented at a luncheon on Tuesday, Dec. 7. More information on the Torch Awards is available at www.sandiego.bbb.org and click “News Center” and “Events.”
To help companies prepare their 2010 Torch Award entry, the BBB is hosting a series of free, one hour workshops featuring guidelines and samples of previous winners. Workshops will begin at noon on July 20 and August 10 and 12 at the BBB offices, 5050 Murphy Canyon Road, San Diego. Luncheon refreshments are served at no cost.
