Ithaca x BASA Awards

The Ithaca x BASA Awards trophy collection was introduced in late 2019 and has since been an essential part of the BASA Awards.

The Atlanta Trophy

Standing 11 ½ inches tall and weighing a robust 1.1 pounds, the BASA Awards’ official statuette is a sculpture of a woman using her might to reach for a star. It signifies the years of hardship and unrecognized work entrepreneurs and small businesses go through before carving out their space in the community.

Better known as Atlanta, the BASA Awards Trophy’s name was inspired by the city where the award was founded and the story of the Greek Goddess Atlanta.

She was an huntress that symbolized courage, resourcefulness, and nobility, traits that embody the entrepreneurs and small businesses we celebrate.
