Help Celebrate Our Arkansas Small Businesses for National Small Business Week: Sept. 22-24

National Small Business Week

National Small Business Week (NSBW) is coming up on September 22-24! During NSBW, the U.S. Small Business Administration and its partners celebrate the important impact small businesses have on job creation and the growth of our nation's economy. In Arkansas alone, 240,000 small businesses employ over 500,000 people, making up the backbone of our state's communities. 

To celebrate our Arkansas small businesses, especially during this challenging time of COVID-19, the SBA Arkansas District Office is encouraging our partners and friends to participate in an online video campaign to recognize and thank the local small businesses that drive innovation, create jobs, and are the lifeblood of our state’s economy!

How you can help celebrate our local Arkansas Small Businesses

1) RECORD a short video (30-60 seconds) on your video camera or cell phone. Use one of the topics below or another of your choosing. Remember to keep it simple and natural!

  • Recognize and thank a small business that has been impactful to you and/or your community.
  • Discuss how small businesses contribute to local economies and job creation and growth.
  • Highlight how small businesses have found ways to pivot during COVID-19 to continue to serve their patrons and communities.
  • Other messages to celebrate or highlight the impact of small businesses in our state.

2) SHARE your video

  • Post your video via your social media channels the week of Sept. 21-25
  • Include hashtags #SBW2020 and #ARSmallBusinessRising
  • Tag @SBA_Arkansas on Twitter

3) CONGRATULATE SBA Arkansas's 2020 Small Business Impact Awardees

SBA Arkansas will re-share and amplify your videos through our social media and highlight the videos from our 2020 Small Business Impact Award winners!

We sincerely hope that you will take part in our Arkansas Small Business Week celebration and join the National Small Business Week Virtual Conference on Sept. 22-24 (see registration details below). We thank you in advance for sharing your appreciation videos to recognize our Arkansas small businesses!
