11 businesses and three nonprofits from Northern Colorado and Wyoming have been named candidates for the 2020 Better Business Bureau Torch Awards for Ethics presented for the 22nd year locally by the BBB Serving Northern Colorado and Wyoming Foundation.

Organizations were nominated by peers, colleagues and customers during the spring and summer of 2019.

Those that accepted will spend the rest of the fall working with a member of the first class of BBB Ethics Scholars interns from Colorado State University, the University of Northern Colorado, and the University of Wyoming to prepare the award application based on BBB’s TRUST! Principles:

  • Transformation at the Top

  • Reinforce and Build

  • Unite the Team

  • Steer Performance

  • Treasure People

  • !Enthusiastically Reinvest

Award winners will be selected in December by an independent panel of judges comprised of BBB board members, past Torch Award winners, and community leaders. Winning organizations will receive their award at the 2020 BBB Torch Awards for Ethics celebration, a luncheon event set for Thursday, April 23 from 11am to 1pm at the Embassy Suites in Loveland, CO.
