The prestigious awards increase awareness of the contributions made by landscape contractors to the industry and the benefits of being committed to the green philosophy.
 
Each winning company receives a trip for two to the Case Tomahawk Customer Center in Tomahawk, Wis., for a customized hands-on equipment training/operation experience, and a $1,000 Case gift card. 
 
This year’s premier awards presentation will be made at this year’s GIE+EXPO, held Oct. 28-30, in Louisville, Ky.
