The independent panel of judges is made up of external key community figures who bring their professional experience and unique perspectives to the table. Together, they assess each submission and determine which companies deserve top-ranks and coveted awards in each category. Judges will review the submissions and rate the work against provided criteria through a private online system, and privately meet as a group to determine the top 3 finalists in each category.  The Barrie Chamber of Commerce staff coordinate the logistics of the judging process, but neither they or the Board are in any way involved in selecting nominees or finalists. 

Judging Criteria is listed with each category description. Judging is performed online by professionals from across the region.  All entries are scored based on judging criteria and submitted anonymously. Judges will not know the name of the company that nominated each individual or business.
