Movers of Mountains Community Awards Celebration

Movers of Mountains - What's That?

We are proud here in Beaverton to have so many community members and businesses that impact our lives in such a positive way! We would like to take the opportunity to celebrate these individuals and their contributions. So below you will find nine categories in which you can nominate people.  We encourage you to nominate as many people and businesses as you would like!  Our committee will then narrow the field down to the top three in each category and then you (the public) will vote!

We then invite you to join us on Friday, May 19 for our Mover of Mountains Gala where we will celebrate the winner of each category! Additionally, there will be entertainment and a silent auction to add to the festivities!

For now - start nominating!
