Let us know who you want to receive a Sammy Award at the 2020 Annual Party & Sammy Awards!

Nominations open November 1 through December 6

This award is presented to a business which has opened within the past year that has proven to be a stand-out in the downtown district and immerses themselves in the downtown community.
This award is presented to a business who has been in downtown Troy through the thick and thin, for the long haul. One that has helped put Troy on the map, before any of us in the room were ever here enjoying Troy. They are a model to their fellow business owners, continuing to learn and expanding their business to suit the changing market.
This award is presented to an individual who volunteers their time to activities, causes, and positive programming in downtown Troy.
