The Snow and Ice Management Association (SIMA) has announced that applications are now available for the 2009 Snow Warrior Awards. The awards for Excellence in Business, Employee of the Year, and Safety will be presented at the banquet at the 12th Annual Snow and Ice Symposium to be held in Louisville, Ky. this June.

The awards honour those who demonstrate commitment to the snow and ice industry through continuous involvement, enthusiasm and leadership. The Excellence in Business Award is given to a company with success in the following: business practices, customer satisfaction, community relations and accountability. Interested companies submit an application, which is then reviewed by a panel of judges.  

The Employee of the Year Award goes to an individual who displays excellence at work, provides leadership and is a positive example for the industry. Companies may fill out a nomination form and submit it to a panel of judges.

Safety Awards are presented to those companies who have demonstrated exceptional safety procedures and execution throughout the year.

Last year, LO member Adam Tyman of Clintar Landscape Management, London, Ont., was named Employee of the Year and received a safety award.

The deadline for Excellence in Business and Employee of the Year Award submissions is March 15, 2009, and the deadline for Safety Award submissions is May 1, 2009.
