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

Nominees for the urban small business winner 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 later. 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 manager or owner who lives in Pima County.

Employ fewer than 100 employees.

Have 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 PM the 12th of January 2018 to:
