Nomination forms for Rock Falls’ prestigious Shoulder to the Wheel Award are available.  This special award is given each year at the Rock Falls Chamber of Commerce’s Annual Meeting & Dinner. Nominees will be accepted in the following categories: Individual, Organization, and Youth Organization. While emphasis is given to work done in recent years, that work can be cumulative, or focused on one specific project. 

Shoulder to the Wheel

The Professional Service Award honors the long term commitment of a Rock Falls professional.  The nominee’s service to the community has come directly through the work they have completed as a part of their employment, yet their work has made an outstanding impact on Rock Falls. Nominations for this award will be accepted every year, however awards may not be presented each year.  

Professional Service Award
