Nominations are open now for the Kansas Exporter of the Year Award, which will be presented next June. The deadline is Jan. 22.
The award is presented to a Kansas-based company that has increased its international sales, developed innovations in global marketing and shown a commitment to its local community.
“This award is an opportunity for Kansas to recognize businesses and their employees that contribute to the economic development of the state through international trade,” said Kansas Commerce Interim Secretary Michael Copeland.
“It’s important for our community and business leaders to have this opportunity to acknowledge the businesses in Kansas that have achieved excellence in exporting.”
Self-nominations are welcome. More details and nomination forms are available at www.KansasCommerce.com/Exporter. Nominations can be faxed, emailed or mailed to April Chiang.
