Nominees Sought For Governor's Export Awards

The Wisconsin International Trade Council (WITCO) is seeking applications for the 2005 Governor's Export Awards. Each year the Governor recognizes firms and organizations that have achieved extraordinary results in international sales or have contributed to Wisconsin's increased ability to compete in a global market. Any agricultural, forestry, industrial, high technology, or service enterprise successfully engaging in or assisting in the export of Wisconsin-origin products or services can be nominated.

The awards are presented in categories based upon size and industry and include: Small and Large Agricultural Exporter - food, farm, or forestry products; Small and Large Industrial Exporter - non-agricultural manufactured products; Small and Large Service Exporter - services provided to customers in other countries; and Small and Large High Tech Exporter - scientific, medical, or other cutting edge products.

An Export Assistance Award is also presented to firms or organizations that provide international business services to customers in Wisconsin. These can include educational, financial, language, logistical, legal, or other service providers that have helped Wisconsin exporters succeed.

The awards will be presented at the 41st Annual Wisconsin International Trade Conference, Tuesday, May 17, 2005, in Milwaukee. Applications can be obtained at commerce.wi.gov/ie/IE-ExportAwards.html or by calling (608) 267-9227. The deadline for submitting nominations to the Wisconsin Department of Commerce is Monday, April 18, 2004.
