The Voting Period for SBA’s Export Video Contest is NOW OPEN
In August, we announced the Export Video Contest, asking small businesses to submit their exporting stories through YouTube videos for a chance to win cash prizes and a monetary award towards a future export event. The contest, presented in partnership with Visa and the President’s National Export Initiative, recognizes successful small exporters and helps get the word out about federal tools available to help U.S. exporters expand into new markets, grow their companies and spur job creation.
You responded. We received entries from companies doing business in Asia, Europe, Africa and the Middle East, representing diverse industries from personal care products to healthcare innovations and residential water solutions.
The videos are in, and a panel of judges has selected the finalists in each of five categories. Now it’s your turn to vote for the best video!
There are two different ways to vote:
1.) You can "Like" your favorite finalist video on the SBA Facebook page under the "VIDEOS" tab:
2.) You can "Like" (thumbs-up) your favorite finalist video on YouTube. Here are links to the videos on YouTube:
Building Beyond Our Borders
Consumer Products category
Grow Your Business One Country At A Time
Exporting: Success Beyond Borders
Professional Services category:
From Small to International Business
Exported from Detroit
You can vote for as many of the videos as you wish on both YouTube and Facebook. Voting closes at 12 Noon (Eastern) on October 28, 2011. Only votes cast through one of the official voting methods will count. "Likes" on videos posted on non-SBA YouTube channels, personal Facebook profiles, or any other website will NOT count toward the final tally. Please see our full Contest Rules for complete contest policies.
