A Tacoma construction company and a Spokane-based bank have been chosen as the latest recipients of the state’s most prestigious civics award.
 
Korsmo Construction and Sterling Savings Bank will receive the 2011 Corporations for Communities award, which honors exceptional Washington businesses that make community a priority. Sterling is the winner of the large-company category and Korsmo took the small-company honor.
Korsmo Construction hosted the fifth annual Billy Stocking Special Olympics swim meet that served more than 200 special needs athletes; built and donated dozens of wooden bunk beds to the Tacoma downtown YMCA shelter; and coordinated with Lakewood Police Department, Forza and other contractors to donate time and materials to build the “Fallen Officers Memorial.”
