The Simon Award
Every year, the President of the Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors awards an outstanding resident of Champaign County with the President’s Award. In 2001, this award was changed to the Simon Award, recognizing the county’s historic heritage and pioneer Simon Kenton. The purpose of this award is to recognize a person(s) and/or an organization(s) that has helped the community and improved the quality of life in Champaign County. The ideal recipient would have an exemplary service record to the local community in single or multiple initiatives, thus enhancing the prosperity of the overall population.
The selection and presentation will be made by the President of the Board of Directors.
Volunteer of the Year Award
Beginning in 2011, the President of the Chamber of Commerce began awarding an outstanding resident of Champaign County with the Volunteer of the Year Award.

The recipient of this award should be someone whose vital contributions of time, energy, and resources have benefited Champaign County and our community.
