Century and Half Century Awards

There are no downloads or additional materials

Thank you for your interest in the Governor’s Century and Half Century Business Awards program. The Governor’s Century and Half Century Business Awards honor Indiana businesses that have remained in operation for at least 100 or 50 years and have demonstrated a history of community service.

Indiana companies that have been in operation for 50 to 99 years and meet program criteria are eligible for the Half Century Award. Indiana companies that have been in operation for 100 years or more and meet program criteria are eligible for the Century Award.

  • By signing the application, each business recognizes, acknowledges and agrees it is in full compliance with the Indiana Secretary of State. A business not in compliance with this entity will not be eligible to receive an award.
  • Each business must have had continuous operations in Indiana for at least 100 or 50 years by December 31, 2021. Companies that have been in business for more than 100 or 50 years are welcome to apply for an award.
  • Each company must be involved in the same type of business as when it was founded. If different, an explanation of the evolution into the current business must be provided on the nomination form.
  • Each business must have been located in the state of Indiana for base operations since the founding of the company.
  • If ownership has shifted from the original founder, the nomination form must demonstrate chain of ownership from founder to present.

A company may only receive Century or Half Century business recognition from the state of Indiana one time. Half Century Award recipients may later qualify for a Century Award. By completing an application, the company certifies it has not previously received the award for which it is applying.
