Nominate Businesses for Recognition During National Small Business Week
Updated: Feb 1
Nominations for 2022 awards are now open. Deadline to submit is January 11, 2022 at 3pm ET.
With the new year beginning, we have the opportunity to recognize small businesses in our community through our 2022 National Small Business Week awards!
Your help is needed to find the best of the best small businesses! SBA employees can't nominate businesses for awards and many business owners are too humble to self-nominate for an award. This is where you fit in, we rely heavily on our partners and lenders within the small business ecosystem to nominate small businesses that do outstanding things everyday in our local communities.
The SBA Seattle District Office invites you to nominate a local small business and/or individual or organization to be considered for recognition for one of the following awards:
Small Business Person of the Year
Exporter of the Year
8(a) Graduate of the Year
Rural Small Business of the Year
Young Entrepreneur of the Year
