Blue Island is a great place to live and work.

Why? Because of the dedicated people who own and run our businesses, and who volunteer their time and talent.

Here is an opportunity to say thank you and acknowledge their hard work.

Please do this: submit a name for each category and tell us why they are deserving. We'll tally the results and send another survey in a couple of weeks for your final votes. Past winners are not eligible.

Thank you for participating and we encourage you to share this with friends.
