Nominate business for 2014 SBA awards

Are you a small business owner with an amazing success story to tell? If so, submit your nomination today for the 2014 National Small Business Week Awards. Nominations are currently being accepted online at nationalsmallbusinessweek. sba.gov/.

For more than 50 years, National Small Business Week has recognized the outstanding achievements of America’s small businesses for their contributions in their local communities, and to our nation’s economy.

Winners will be announced during National Small Business Week, May 12-16, 2014.

Last year, we honored small business owner John Stonecipher— CEO of Guidance Aviation—with the National Small Business Person of the Year Award. John turned his childhood fascination with airplanes into a successful business. Today Guidance Aviation has a staff of 55, fourteen aircrafts and a waiting list of students ready to take flight into their futures.

In addition to the portal, nominations can also be sent directly to SBA District Offices, which can be located online at district offices. All nominations must be submitted online, postmarked or hand delivered to the SBA no later than 11:59 p.m. ET on Jan. 17, 2014.
