2023 Award Nominations

Dream BIG Oklahoma is back again for another year of celebrating those who BUILD, INVEST IN and GROW Oklahoma’s economy! Who will we celebrate in 2023?


In 2019, REI Oklahoma opened nominations to the general public for the top three Dream BIG Oklahoma awards – Vision Award, Dream Big Award and Dr. Fern Green-Bowling Diamond Award. This provided an opportunity to further reach those who are making a BIG impact in our state. Nominations for the 2023 Dream BIG Oklahoma awards are now OPEN and will be accepted through June 30, 2023, with the winners notified in early August 2023. Winners for all Dream BIG Oklahoma awards will be recognized at the annual event scheduled for Tuesday, October 10, 2023, at the Grand Casino Resort in Shawnee, Oklahoma.

Anyone may nominate an individual, entrepreneur, business or organization meeting the established criteria for each award. Individual nominees must be from the state of Oklahoma and a business/organization nominee must have been established in Oklahoma with one or more current locations in the state.
