Annual Meeting & Best of Ballston Awards

The Ballston BID’s Annual Meeting and Best of Ballston Awards Program presented by Clark Construction Group, LLC was an evening recognizing the hidden stars of Ballston.  Talented, creative, smart and savvy people walk the streets of our neighborhood --- this event was our time to share their success stories!

We awarded the following 'Best of Ballston' awards: Property Manager Award, Broker Award and the Innovation Award.

 A panel of judges convened to review all the submissions and the winners that were announced on June 21st at the Westin Arlington Gateway Hotel at 801 N. Glebe Road.


We welcomed Zach Leonsis, Vice President and General Manager of Monumental Sports Network as a keynote speaker and presenter of the Innovation Award. Leonsis led Monumental Sports Network from an ad-based blogging platform into an OTT network capable of processing new-age subscription bundles and continues to be a leader in the tech and innovation community.The grand finale of the evening was the presentation of the Robert Ball Award, named after the founding Ball family of Ballston, to John Shooshan in recognition of his contributions to Ballston and Arlington. His talents and dedication to Ballston have strengthened the network in our community and have enhanced the neighborhood aesthetically and intellectually.
