Nominations sought for SBA awards

Nominations will be accepted through Jan. 7 for annual awards presented by the U.S. Small Business Administration to small businesses and small business owners.

“We are proud to recognize the small business owners that have made it their mission to support their communities and drive the entrepreneurial spirit forward,” said Chris Pilkerton, acting administrator of the SBA. “A National Small Business Week award is one of the nation’s highest honors for small business achievement. I wish all our nation’s small businesses the best of luck and look forward to their nomination.”

The 2020 National Small Business Week program will include the Small Business Person of the Year Award presented in each of the 50 states and U.S. territories as well as awards for exporting, federal contracting and SBA resource partners.
