Red Deer River Ad­ven­tures re­ceived the award for Drumheller’s Most Promis­ing New Busi­ness. The new busi­ness award went to a new busi­ness that has been in op­er­a­tion for less than two years, that shows a de­sire for growth and pros­per­ity, and demon­strates a com­mit­ment to and pos­i­tive im­pact on the com­mu­nity.

Sub­lime won the Small Busi­ness of the Year Award for being a busi­ness that has been in op­er­a­tion for at least two years, that has 10 or less em­ploy­ees, and that best re­flects the out­stand­ing spirit and suc­cess of the Drumheller area.

Fred Makowecki re­ceived the award for the busi­ness pro­fes­sional of the year. This was awarded to an in­di­vid­ual, man­ager, or em­ployee who is ac­tive in the busi­ness com­mu­nity and/or non-profit com­mu­nity, and that demon­strates pro­fes­sion­al­ism and a pas­sion for mak­ing our com­mu­nity the best place to work, live and do busi­ness.

A&W was awarded the Di­ver­sity Lead­er­ship Award. This award was for an or­ga­ni­za­tion that em­braces di­ver­sity in their work­force, en­cour­ages re­spect and in­clu­sion, elim­i­nates dis­crim­i­na­tion and bar­ri­ers, and helps to cre­ate wel­com­ing and in­clu­sive work­places.

Cana­dian Pas­sion Play won the award for the Arts, Cul­ture, and Com­mu­nity as a busi­ness, non-profit or other for­mally rec­og­nized group that demon­strates out­stand­ing achieve­ment and con­tri­bu­tion in the area of arts, cul­ture, or com­mu­nity, and sound man­age­ment prac­tices to en­sure their long term sus­tain­abil­ity.
