The U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) is now accepting nominations for its next New Jersey Small Business Person of the Year Award, as well as nominations for all the agency’s 2020 National Small Business Week Awards.
“A National Small Business Week award is one of the nation’s highest honors for small business achievement,” SBA Acting Administrator Chris Pilkerton said. “Please take a moment to visit sba.gov/nsbw to nominate a deserving small business owner in your area. I wish all of our nation’s small businesses the best of luck and look forward to their nomination.”
“Since 1963, National Small Business Week has recognized the outstanding achievements of America’s small businesses for their contributions to their local communities, and to our nation’s economy,” said SBA New Jersey District Director Al Titone. “We are always looking for the best and brightest small business owners, who have utilized and benefited from SBA programs and services around New Jersey, to submit their Small Business Week 2020 award nominations to the SBA.”
The dedicated website https://www.sba.gov/national-small-business-week/national-small-business-week-awards has the necessary forms, criteria and guidelines for submitting a nomination package.
According to Titone, SBA Awards are given in celebration of National Small Business Week, May 3-9, 2020. The winner selected for the New Jersey Small Business Person of the Year will be invited to Washington, D.C. that week where they will compete for the title of National Small Business Person of the Year. In addition to the Small Business Person the Year, the SBA is also looking for award nominations in the following categories:
