Eligible applicants must be in business in the Outer Banks area (Dare County, Currituck County or Ocracoke Island) and members in good standing of the Outer Banks Chamber of Commerce.

“We are looking for those that stand out above the rest,” said Outer Banks Chamber president and CEO Karen Brown. “These awards recognize community partners that make the Outer Banks a great place to live and work.”
