19th Annual Torch Awards for Marketplace Trust


19th Annual Torch Awards for Marketplace Trust

BBB Torch Awards Beaumont TX

Applications for the 2016 BBB Torch Awards for Marketplace Trust regional competition will be accepted through March 21, 2016. Two categories of for-profit companies will be recognized: one large (21 employees or more), and one small (up to 20 employees). The non-profit category is also split and will award one not-for-profit organization as well as a non-profit charity.

The Torch Award is intended to recognize those for-profit businesses and non-profit organizations in our region committed to maintaining exceptionally high standards of ethical behavior in buyer/seller and provider/supporter relationships. 

BBB encourages the many outstanding companies and charities in Southeast Texas, small and large, that work to uphold the trust and respect of their customers and supporters to submit an entry for these prestigious awards. You need not have a formal ethics program or be BBB accredited to enter.

Southeast Texans are also asked to nominate for-profit or non-profit groups in the region and to encourage those organizations he/she works for, or where they are a customer or supporter, to apply for the award. You may submit nominations and applications online here:
