How to Enter

Three Grand Prize winners will win $15,000 each courtesy of Sam’s Club – money that will go a long way in helping you build your business. In addition, two businesses from each state and the District of Columbia will win a trip to a National Training and Networking Celebration to be held in Reno, Nevada, April 23-26, 2018, supported with a SCORE mentor and business advice to help you grow your business.

If you’ve already been a SCORE client, your business may win one of eleven SCORE Awards and be invited to the SCORE Awards Gala on September 13, 2018 in Washington, D.C. All entrants get major national publicity.

You can enter online through this website January 10, 2018 through February 7, 2018 at 5:00 pm EST. To enter, answer the question, “What makes your business one of the best small businesses in your community?” through a video of 30-60 seconds, or with a photo and written response of 1,000 characters or less. You will also need to get at least 100 votes for your entry to be eligible to win.

Winners will be based on public voting and judging by small business experts. See Official Rules for more details.
