Niceville.com, Niceville’s community website, has been named the recipient of the inaugural Keep It Local award by the Niceville Valparaiso Chamber of Commerce.
Gilson Group, Inc., publishers of Niceville.com, received the honor at the Chamber’s annual Awards Celebration held at Northwest Florida State College.
Niceville.com, and its Facebook page, Niceville Fla, were singled out for the award for highlighting and promoting local businesses, local activities, and publishing community news.
“They have an extensive history of supporting the greater Niceville area over the years,” said Alan Wood, outgoing Chamber Chairman of the Board. “They work to highlight positive activities and news, and help to spread the word when new businesses come to town.”
The new award underscores the Chamber’s Keep It Local mantra. It is aimed at recognizing the contributions made by businesses and individuals toward promoting our local marketplace, economy, and community.
Niceville.com has served the community since 2000. More than 500,000 pages were viewed by readers last year. Its Facebook page has nearly 19,000 followers.
