Now Accepting Nominations!

Illustration of a trophy with text, 2023 National Small Business Week Awards. Now accepting nominations. The SBA logo is included.

Nominations opened on September 1, 2022. Alabama has not had the opportunity to be recognized on a national level beyond the state-level winner of Small Business Person of the Year, but we would love to change that this year to ensure that Alabama businesses get the recognition they deserve. Besides it is excellent marketing for your business should you win.
