The state of Indiana is currently accepting nominations for the Governor’s Century and Half-Century Business Awards, which honor Hoosier businesses that have remained in operation for at least 100 or 50 years, respectively, and have demonstrated a commitment to serving the community.

Applications are due Wednesday. To qualify, the business must:

  • Have had continuous operations in Indiana for more than 50 or 100 years by Dec. 31, 2020.
  • Have participated in the same line of work for the duration of its operations. If different, an explanation of the evolution into the current business must be provided on the nomination form.
  • Have had its base in the state since it was founded.
  • Recognize, acknowledge and agree it is in full compliance with the Indiana Secretary of State, Department of Revenue and Department of Workforce Development by signing the application.

Previous century or half-century award winners may not apply. Previous half-century award recipients, however, may qualify for a century award.

Eligible companies are encouraged to complete the online application.
