"Many prominent national and international organizations and outstanding people renowned for their ingenuity, innovation and aptitude are located right here within the borders of Utah. Everything from commercial entities to private individuals is recognized annually for their excellence in the Best of State Awards Program.

Best of State recognizes those who are excelling and surpassing all else and who are the best of the best in their respective fields. Nearly two hundred categories in the arts & entertainment, community development, education, travel & tourism, manufacturing, business services, science & technology, and sports & recreation provide opportunities for business operating in Utah to participate.

We are proud of the many accomplishments of our fellow Utahns. I hope you will join me in support of these unique awards and their recipients, which will be televised from the Salt Palace in June. "
