Existing Industry Awards

Existing Industry Awards 2016-11-04T20:35:15+00:00

The EDAWN Existing Industry Awards recognizes Primary Companies in the region for their outstanding contribution to our community in a variety of ways. A Primary Company is a private sector company in Washoe County, Storey County or Fernley where the majority of the company’s revenue (>50%) is generated from outside the State of Nevada. The Existing Industry Awards is a great opportunity to recognize existing Primary Companies for their contribution to Northern Nevada.
