Chamber's Choice Awards

25th Annual Chamber’s Choice Awards

The Greater East Aurora Chamber of Commerce is again proud to present the annual Chamber’s Choice Awards student recognition. This will be the 25th year for this awards program and the Chamber will be honoring it’s 1000th high school graduate.

The program is designed to acknowledge and honor students who have demonstrated significant development in a variety of aspects of their learning and growth, such as community service, entrepreneurship, citizenship, artistic excellence, and communications as well as many other diverse areas.

Ten seniors are selected from each of the 4 schools, East AuroraHolland and Iroquois high schools, and the BOCES W.D. Ormsby Educational Center.

The program provides an opportunity for these students to be recognized for their positive contributions to their schools, communities, and peer groups.

In a non-Covid year the Chamber would typically recognize the students with a banquet dinner with over 200 guests attending including the students, their family members, teachers, school officials and business leaders, and sponsors but this year, with sponsorship support, the Chamber will be recognizing students once again with a 30-minute televised program on WBBZ-TV Ch. 5 cable/FIOS/Dish & Ch. 67 Direct TV.

The show will air at 9 p.m. on Wednesday, May 18; 10:30 a.m. on Sunday, May 22; and 8 p.m. on Monday, May 23.

The Chamber’s Choice is a great opportunity to promote our local school districts and our students’ achievements & our local businesses that support them, to viewers across Western New York.

Each student will have 20 seconds to introduce themselves, talk about their high school experiences and their future goals.
