Any manufacturing company can enter any of the Made in Elk Grove Manufacturing & Technology Business Excellence Award categories by submitting an entry form by August 26, 2016. Multiple nominations may be submitted by a single manufacturing enterprise, but each must be for a different category. No single enterprise may win more than one EGV Business Excellence Award.

Manufacturing enterprises are establishments engaged in the mechanical, physical, or chemical transformation of materials, substances, or components into new products. The assembling of component parts of manufactured products is considered manufacturing. Establishments in the Manufacturing sector are often described as plants, factories, or mills and characteristically use power-driven machines and materials-handling equipment.

EGV Business Excellence Award winners are selected based on evaluations by judges. One winner will be designated for each of the three award categories.
