Know about an amazing startup culture that has you green with envy? One you wished you could work at? Well, one company wants to hear about it.

Workplace-designer turnstone is on a nationwide hunt for awesome companies for its 2013 Best Young Companies to Work For contest.

The campaign plans on highlighting companies that have excelled in various areas, including positive work culture, forward-thinking leadership, talent retention, business innovation, community outreach and workspace planning and design.

If you are looking to nominate a company, the application process is pretty clear-cut: Tell turnstone why you believe the business is incredible.

But keep in mind, not just any company can be in the running. The business needs be under 10-years-old, have less than 100 employers and self-nominations are not permitted. So, if you are an employee of the company you can't vote. Instead, get your friends, family and business associates to tell turnstone about its kick-ass perks.

Submissions will be accepted until August 23. After the cutoff date, a panel of judges including Ernest & Young Entrepreneurial Winning Women Katie Johnston, Lesa Mitchell of the Kauffman Foundation, Professor of management at the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania Peter Cappelli, CEO of UP Global Marc Nager and general manager of turnstone Kevin Kuske will determine the winner in each category.

Besides being recognized for their amazingness, the startup crowned in each category will also receive a goody bag of turnstone products to spruce up their workplace. The prizes will be centered around products companies can utilize for small collaboration spaces.
