The 2024 Impact Awards

Introduced at the 2023 Minot Area Chamber EDC Annual Meeting, the first-ever Impact Awards showcased our community’s organizations, businesses, and individuals who influence and impact the Minot area in a positive way. This annual celebration is back, and we can’t wait to hear who you feel should take home a 2024 award. From small businesses making big moves to individual leaders with boundless vision; from longstanding businesses and organizations with decades of influence to true friends of our armed forces — let us know who you think deserves to be celebrated.

  • Hess Corporation for Outstanding Community Impact
  • Prairie Sky Breads for Outstanding Small Business
  • Ron Merritt, Executive Director of the Minot Park District, for Outstanding Leadership
  • Verendrye Electric Cooperative for Outstanding Military Support
