An update on the 2021 ELITE Awards Email

The ELITE Awards

We’ve received a lot of inquiries about the 2021 ELITE Awards and want to update you on the revised time frame for submissions and judging.

Due to COVID-19, we do not anticipate being able to host an in-person awards event in March as usually planned. Therefore, we have pushed back the awards timeline and hope to host an event in May 2021.

We are preparing the submission process and plan to open award nominations in December. Look for an announcement in the coming weeks about how to submit your company’s best work for recognition. We also plan to host an informational webinar about The ELITE Awards and the submission process in December. Details on that will be announced soon as well.

In the meantime, review the categories at www.alcc.com/awards-program, take a look at previous winners, and gather information and photos about the projects you might want to submit.

Want to help us choose the 2021 winners? We welcome ALCC members to serve as a judge in your area of expertise—though not in any category where your company submits, of course. Contact Melissa Emdin at 720 307-5092 about becoming an ELITE Awards judge. Judging will take place in February 2021.
