Minority business owners sought for awardsWritten by Admin
Know someone, maybe yourself, who should be minority businessperson of the year?
The Minority Enterprise Development Week Committee is now accepting nominations for this year’s awards.
Businesses open for at least two years can nominate themselves. In addition to the overall winner, awards will be presented to category winners in construction, manufacturing, restaurant, retail and service. For businesses open fewer than two years, a nomination for a new award, Outstanding Emerging Business, can be submitted.
The awards are open to minority small business owners from Haywood, Jackson, Macon, Swain, Madison, Buncombe, Clay, Cherokee, Graham, Henderson, and Transylvania counties.
All nominations must be received by June 30. The self-nomination forms can be found at www.wncmedweek.org, or 828.497.1670.
