What are the Bizzy Awards?
The Bizzy Awards are a Hollywood Academy Awards-style competition between Greater Pocono Chamber of Commerce member businesses in Northeast Pennsylvania. Greater Pocono Chamber of Commerce members choose which category they would like to enter, there are 12 in all and you may enter more than one. However, there is an entry fee for each category you enter. Ballots for voting will be sent out to all Greater Pocono Chamber of Commerce members. Votes are then tallied and the winners announced at a televised awards dinner in September.
Why enter the Bizzy Awards?
It is the only fun, competitive awards program that pits business against business. There's a red carpet, formal attire and a LIVE televised broadcast of the event. And proceeds raised goes toward the Greater Pocono Chamber of Commerce.
