2022 Downtown First Awards


Raising the Bar

The Downtown First Awards recognize businesses, organizations, and individuals who put downtown first through their commitments of time, advocacy and resources.

The community is invited to nominate businesses, organizations, and individuals deserving of recognition. An independent selection committee reviews nominations and selects winners in each award category (Rock Springs Main Street/URA board members are not eligible for awards).

Awards will be presented at our annual Downtown First Awards Banquet - February 23 at the Broadway Theater at 5:30 p.m.

Submit your nominations here.

(Nominated businesses, merchants or organizations must be located in the Downtown Rock Springs focus area and nominated individuals must live, work or volunteer in the focus area.)
