SCOR is a Regional Economic Development Corporation which includes Oxford County, Norfolk, Brant, Elgin and Middlesex. SCOR representative for Oxford Stephen Molnar tells Heart FM they are accepting nominees until August 30th. He talks about some of the people they honoured at this event last year.
"We had restaurant owners, young farmers, people who were staying at home, candy makers, just a full gambit of celebrations. I think one of the other things that was the key was the sharing."
