Areté Awards

The St. George Area Chamber of Commerce is pleased to announce the second annual Areté Awards.

Rooted deep in Greek history, Areté means excellence in all things. The notion of excellence was ultimately bound to the idea of complete fulfillment – the act of living up to one’s full potential. The Areté Award recognizes business or community leaders of the highest caliber. These leaders excel in their profession while dedicating time and resources to the betterment of the St. George Area and/or Washington County community. They are leaders in the workplace, innovators in their industry, and assets to our community.

Nominations Are Closed for the 2022 Areté Award.
