five under 40
Five-Under-Forty Awards: This recognition will honor five of the Beaver Dam area's brightest young leaders who have demonstrated success in their careers and the communities they represent. We are looking for individuals who are rising stars showing leadership and making a positive impact in their work and where they live.
Innovation Awards
Innovation Awards: The Beaver Dam Chamber of Commerce Innovation Awards seek to inspire, celebrate, and encourage an environment of positive change-making innovations by honoring the most innovative companies and organizations in the Beaver Dam area. Awards will be presented to both a large and a small company and an organization whose product, project, program, process improvement or practice best exemplify forward-thinking ideas and extraordinary innovation. We will also recognize other entries on social media and press releases.
emerging leader award
Emerging Leader Award: This award started in 2021 and recognizes a high school or post-secondary student who has made a significant impact and positive difference in Beaver Dam through his/her leadership activities and/or work initiatives.

We hope you are as excited as we are to turn a new page at the Chamber. We want to thank American Bank and Horicon Bank for their sponsorship of the Annual Awards Dinner (additional sponsorships are available).
