2016_SBA_awards_4cWe are currently accepting nominations for our 2016 Small Business Awards through Friday, Dec. 4. The program, now in its 12th year, is presented by Cornerstone Design and Development. Inc. and Zernco, Inc. It offers well-deserved recognition to small businesses for their achievements and contributions to our community and provides owners and employees the opportunity to showcase their company, share their story and be rewarded for their efforts.

Business Criteria for Participation

  • Employ between 1-25 FTE for Tier One, or 26-100 FTE for Tier Two
  • Have been in business for at least three years
  • Demonstrate a commitment to good business practices
  • Maintain good employee relations
  • Contribute to the community
  • Have primary source of revenues from business operations, rather than grants, donors, or governmental funding (not-for-profits may be eligible to apply if they meet this criteria)

Nominations take less than a minute and can be made online at wichitachamber.org/awards.
