2023 Nominations are now closed. 

Thank you to everyone who nominated a business!

The Community Relations Committee is reviewing nominees and updates will be posted in early April. Thank you!

Based on the criteria for nomination, the following 12 Stoughton businesses have been nominated by community members for their demonstrated support and dedication to the district over the past school year.

1. Blue Moon Community Farm

  • "Kristen Kordet, the owner of Blue Moon, is a dedicated volunteer at Fox Prairie Elementary. She is a pivotal member of the Garden committee. Kristen donates many seedlings from her farm to the Fox garden annually, and she helps to plot the garden layout. In the spring and fall, she teaches lessons in many of the grade levels about gardening and farming, providing hands on activity that many of these kids don't get in standard classroom work. Kristen also finds time to volunteer in the classrooms, helping kids with reading and schoolwork above and beyond what she does with the garden committee. Kristen's work with the Fox Prairie students adds another dynamic layer to the science curriculum and builds a foundation for respecting our environment for the next generation. Please consider Blue Moon Community Farm as a nominee for the WASB Business Honor Roll."

2. Conant Automotive

  • "Conant Auto has generously provided financial support to the High School Band Boosters for well over a decade."

  • "Eldon Homes provided scholarships to Stoughton Area School District (SASD) graduating class of 2022 and has committed to doing so for years to come. Eldon Homes have also donated their financial resources and employee volunteers for numerous school activities. However, their largest and most notable donation has been to the new “Anderson Complex” at Collins Field. This new complex is named after Eldon Homes founders, Keith Anderson, and Tammy Anderson. Keith and Tammy Anderson and Eldon Homes have donated more than $1.1 million dollars for the new community field. SASD and the entire Stoughton community is incredibly grateful and excited to have Eldon Homes as a new, and incredibly important partner in the success of SASD students."

Over the years they have donated to numerous things that support our schools. They have financially supported our nationally recognized Fab Lab, our high school library, and other needs within our k-12 system. Most recently Stoughton Trailers donated $600,000 to our Collins Field at Anderson Complex. Stoughton Trailers’ support allowed the school district to complete the community field.

  • "The owner Dave is a great guy! He often will do copies for art-related things my students create for no charge. He also provides us with simple task-based work for beginning transition students to learn early job skills."
