    December 11, 2018

    The Greater Scranton Chamber of Commerce held their annual Chamber Gala, the 2018 SAGE Awards (Scranton Awards for Growth and Excellence) on Dec. 7, 2018, which honor outstanding local businesses for their talent, creativity, and innovation. The winners of each award category were publicly announced that evening at the Hilton Scranton & Conference Center.

    More than 80 applications were received. A group of volunteer community leaders and professionals teamed up to review applications and select finalists. 

    The University of Scranton's Office of Community Relations is proud to have received the Hometown Star SAGE award for their annual Downtown Scavenger Hunt. The Hometown Star award recognizes an individual, business or organization that has made a significant economic impact on our area by conducting an event, with a rich social, historical and charitable contribution to our area.

    The Scavenger Hunt is in its 8th year and takes place during the first week of classes each fall and is part of the University's Downtown Engagement Initiative. This past year, 40 downtown businesses and almost 200 students participated in the hunt.
