2006 State Quality Awards Directory
Successful quality-oriented organizations are always looking for ways to hone the edges of their quality management systems. One of the best methods for doing so is to apply for a state quality award. For a select few, application for a local award is the first step on a journey that leads to a Malcolm Baldrige National Quality Award. For most, however, the awards system is simply a great benchmarking tool to see how their quality efforts stack up against others. It's another way to ensure that organizational quality becomes an operational way of life.
Welcome to Quality Digest's 2006 State Quality Awards directory. On the following pages you'll find a state-by-state summary of available awards, contact information and award summaries, including who may apply and deadline dates. We've done our best to include only that information that we've personally confirmed, but we suggest that you contact award administrators directly to verify important dates, requirements and other critical data.
We wish you the best of luck on your journey to state quality award recognition.
