Nevada Small Business Awards 2016

It's time to nominate and recognize outstanding Nevada small businesses.

(The nomination form is attached at the bottom of this page! It’s quick. It’s easy!)

During the Fall of each year, the Nevada District begins the process of identifying potential nominees for the annual Nevada SBA Small Business Awards the following Spring.  Last year we had some excellent winners, and we need your help to recruit worthy nominees so that we can recognize outstanding businesses throughout Nevada in each of our categories!

We encourage participation from all parts of Nevada so judges can consider nominations from the entire range of our exceptional statewide businesses.

How you can help. Nominate small businesses throughout the state!

As someone who has been intimately involved in the business community, you can help by encouraging local organizations to nominate deserving companies from their membership, client base or constituencies, and you can nominate deserving individuals and companies you are personally familiar with.

Together, we can help recognize companies throughout Nevada which have not only weathered economic storms, but have demonstrated a multi-year pattern of excellence in their chosen industry.

Nomination is easy. It’s a one page form. DEADLINE FOR NOMINATIONS IS DECEMBER 1, 2015.

Attached you will find the nomination form which is due via fax or email by December 1, 2015 to:
