(Beaver Dam) The deadline is soon approaching to submit nominations for an event that recognizes excellence in local industry. The Manufacturing Business Alliance of the Dodge County Region will be hosting their annual awards breakfast next month. Beaver Dam Chamber of Commerce President Phil Fritsche says there are four award categories including a Manufacturing Partnership Award, a Manufacturing in Education Award, a Career in Manufacturing Award and a Youth in Manufacturing Award. Fritsche says the nomination forms take very little time to fill out and asks individuals to fill out a bullet point list on why that person or business deserves the award. The deadline to submit nomination forms is this Thursday, January 31. Fritsche says all paperwork is available on the chamber website at www.beaverdamchamber.com. The Manufacturing Business Alliance awards breakfast will take place on February 28 at the Springbrook Estate Barn Hall.
