Nominations are now being accepted for the 2019 Washington Business Hall of Fame

Laureate Selection Criteria

  • Business excellence

  • Visionary, innovative leadership

  • Community involvement

Through these accomplishments, Laureates serve as role models for the next generation of business leaders, many of whom are currently Junior Achievement students.
