The U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) is now accepting nominations for its 2020 National Small Business Week Awards, including the annual Small Business Person of the Year.
For more than 50 years, National Small Business Week has celebrated the inspiring achievements of America’s small businesses and the contributions they make to their local communities, and to the nation’s economy.
“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,” SBA Acting Administrator Chris Pilkerton (pictured) said. “A National Small Business Week award is one of the nation’s highest honors for small business achievement.”
SBA Awards will be given in celebration of National Small Business Week from May 3-9, 2020. All nominations must be submitted no later than 3 p.m. EST, Jan. 7, 2020. All nomination packages must be hand delivered or mailed to the nearest SBA Office. Email submissions of SBA Awards forms will not be accepted as they contain personally identifiable information (PII).
