Local nonprofit organizations can also be nominated

The commission is accepting nominations for 2017 Small Business of the Year Awards. Urban small business and rural small businesses are eligible for the awards, as are Pima County-based nonprofit corporations exempt from federal income taxes.

Nominees for the urban small business award must be from within the Tucson city limits. Nonprofit nominees must provide assistance to small businesses through employment training, workforce development, job placement, counseling and referrals. Nominees for the rural small business must be from a rural or small community, or any municipality outside the City of Tucson.

Award winners will be recognized during a Pima County Board of Supervisors meeting in early 2018. The date of the meeting will be determined at a later time. Each winner will receive a $500 prize.

Nominees must be located in Pima County (may be a branch or division of a larger company); have a manager or owner who lives in Pima County; employ fewer than 100 people and been in operation for two or more years

Nomination forms can be downloaded from the county’s Small Business Commission webpage. Completed nomination forms and support material must be submitted by mail, fax or email by 5 p.m. Jan. 12, 2018 to:
