Mid-Columbia Small Business Award Nominations

Posted: Updated:

PASCO, Wash. - Nominations are now being taken for the 17th Annual Mid-Columbia Small Business Awards.

Every year in May, local, small businesses are honored for exceptional customer service, superior community relations and ethical business practices.

Anyone living in Benton or Franklin county can send in a nomination, or businesses can self-nominate.

Debbie Bone-Harris, the event chairman, said, "it's pretty prestigious in the Tri-Cities, but more than that, it lets others know how you care about our community, how you care about your employees and how you really care about your customers."

To qualify, "small" businesses must be locally owned and operated with less than 60 full time employees, and "micro" businesses have less than 10.

If you'd like to submit a business, the deadline is March 30th, and the process is simple. Click here to download the nomination forms.
