About the SC Branded Awards

The state of South Carolina is a brand. Across the nation, the Palmetto and Crescent signify something more than just boundaries of land; they are a symbol of a culture—a culture of strength, determination, innovation, creativity, and Southern values. But the magic of that identity isn’t in a tree or a crescent. The brand of South Carolina is shared with and found in every citizen…every company…every product…every brand that claims this diamond-shaped piece of earth for its own. As a state, we’re just 1 of 50 territories on a map. But it’s the brands that call South Carolina home that are the true essence of who we are, what we’ve been, and what our future holds. Awards are presented annually in various categories as a partnership between the South Carolina Chamber of Commerce and The Brand Leader.
