• The Enhancing Elgin Committee of the Elgin Development Group is pleased to revive the valuable Elgin Image Awards after a hiatus of several years.  These awards recognize outstanding individuals, businesses, and organizations who are making a powerful difference in the City of Elgin by promoting the positives of why Elgin is a great place to live, work, learn, do business, get involved, visit and enjoy!

    The Elgin Image Awards were developed to honor persons, projects and organizations who are making significant contributions to the community through their time, actions, talents, and dedication. The honorees selected should serve as role models for service and be striving to make our community a better place.
