The Golden Apple Awards recognize outstanding employee health promotion programs in Washington State. The Washington State Governor’s Council on Physical Fitness, Health and Sports originally established the Golden Apples in the mid-1980s to recognize excellence in promoting physical fitness and health. Today’s Healthy Worksite Summit Planning Team honors that tradition, and broadens it, to recognize public and private employers across the State who demonstrate real commitment to their employees’ overall well-being.

Apply for a 2021 Golden Apple Award

Golden Apple Awards are made annually by the Healthy Worksite Summit Planning Team. Nominations may be submitted by anyone believing a workplace health initiative deserves special recognition. Individuals and organizations are welcome to nominate themselves. Previous winners may reapply again in five or more years. Winners are recognized annually during the Healthy Worksite Summit.

Applications are due March 5, 2021.
