Annual Awards Gala and 50-Year Celebration

Event Description:

The Frisco Chamber of Commerce honors outstanding businesses, organizations, and citizens at its annual Frisco Number Ones Gala each year. This gala is attended by over 600 of Frisco’s most influential business and community leaders. Nominations for awards are accepted and applications are reviewed and judged by a cross-section of Frisco business professionals that comprised the review committee. In addition to the business awards, the Frisco Chamber President and Chair of the Board each honored a business organization or individual that has made a significant difference to the Frisco Chamber of Commerce during the past year.

This event allows the business community to come together to celebrate each other’s successes, and allows recognition of those businesses that make Frisco number one in so many ways!

  • The Citizen of the Year Award is given to the outstanding citizen who enhanced our community by their notable contributions and public service. The recipient must reside in Frisco. Contributions to the community must have taken place in 2019 for consideration.
  • The Silver Citizen of the Year Award goes to the person, or persons, who have made long-term contributions to the community or contributions of public service to Frisco over the past 25 years. The recipient(s) must reside in Frisco and be at least 50 years of age.
  • The Spirit of Frisco Award is given to a person who exemplifies love, dedication, commitment, and sincerity towards his or her city and fellow citizens…a person who truly embodies the spirit of our great town. The recipient(s) must reside in Frisco.

You are able to nominate for one or more categories, however, you can only nominate for one category at a time.
