How to Enter

Three Grand Prize winners will win $25,000 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 $1,000 Sam’s Club gift cards. Winners also will attend a regional Championship Celebration, 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 14, 2017 in Washington, D.C. All entrants get major national publicity.

You can enter online through this website January 12, 2017 through February 13, 2017 at 5:00 pm EST. To enter, answer the question, “What one unique aspect of your business will make you succeed over the next year?” through a video of 30-60 seconds, or with a photo and written response of 1,500 characters or less. You will also need to get at least 100 votes for your entry to be eligible to win.
