The 2018 BBB Torch Awards for Ethics finalists will be celebrated, and four winners announced, live at the event. The 2018 BBB Torch Award for Ethics ceremony will take place at Hyundai Club at U.S. Bank Stadium Wednesday, October 24 at 2:30. Dennis W.

Inclusive in the ceremony, BBB will award five Student of Integrity Scholarships totaling $10,500.

Scholarship money can be applied toward winners’ post-secondary education expenses at any accredited institution. The deadline for applications is Thursday, September 20. All interested students are welcome to apply at bbb.org/minnesota/scholarship.
BBB presents Torch Awards for Ethics each year to for-profit companies owned or operated in Minnesota and North Dakota who display integrity in all aspects of their operations. Nominees submit a detailed entry to BBB, and a panel of independent volunteer business and community leaders review entries and select the winners. Nominees must be in good standing with BBB; however, accreditation is not a requirement to compete for the award.
