This year's winners are the SRS Wealth Management Group, Bozeman Distributors, the Louisiana Workers Compensation Corporation and the Mary Bird Perkins Cancer Center.
Since 2001, the Manship Award has been bestowed upon businesses every year that rise above the competition while upholding the highest regard for ethical standards. The independent panel of judges in charge of the selection process identify business entities that practice exemplary treatment of everyone involved in the day-to-day operations of their industrial practices including customers, employees, suppliers, shareholders and the community as a whole.

During the event, the BBB will also present its fifth annual scholarship to a high school senior selected from among his or her peers for displaying qualities promoted by the Manship Award.
