The event, a program of the BBB Institute for Marketplace Trust, will celebrate three businesses and one nonprofit from Northern Colorado and Wyoming that demonstrate exemplary ethics.

Teams of business students from Colorado State University, University of Northern Colorado, and the University of Wyoming worked with nominated businesses to prepare the award application and nonprofits submitted their own application. An independent panel of judges made the final selections based on the six TRUST! Principles - the award criteria.
