The Austin Chamber of Commerce announced winners of its 17th Annual Greater Austin Business Awards. The awards were presented during ceremonies held on Aug. 30 at the Hilton Austin in front of about 1,000 attendees.

Close to 500 companies were nominated for the Chamber’s Business Awards. The winners were selected by an independent panel of judges except for the Most Uniquely Austin Award, which was selected by open public voting.

Awards that had multiple recipients were divided into categories based on number of employees and winners were listed sequentially: 401+ employees, 101-400 employees, 26-100 employees, and 1-25 employees.

The Cook-Walden Funeral Home Community Relations Award recognizes any organization that demonstrates a successful approach to corporate social responsibility and can show a positive impact on the community.

KVUE was proud to have been selected as a 2017 winner of this award for our community service efforts in Central Texas.
