Small Business Administration now accepting nominations for several awards

Each year, during National Small Business Week, the US Small Business Administration (SBA) recognizes outstanding small-business owners and advocates for their contribution to the American economy and society. President Obama has declared May 15–22, 2011 as National Small Business Week.
SBA is currently accepting nominations for several SBA award categories, including the 2011 Small Business Person of the Year Award. The Los Angeles SBA Office serves Los Angeles, Ventura and Santa Barbara counties. Trade associations, chambers of commerce and business organizations frequently sponsor candidates. A business owner may also nominate themselves or other candidates.
“The SBA looks forward to honoring these entrepreneurs who are contributing to our community and economy in their respective industries.” Said Theodore Holloman, acting Los Angeles SBA district director. “Our tri-county service area of Los Angeles, Ventura and Santa Barbara counties has one of the most vibrant and diverse small business communities in the nation.”
Nomination criteria and deadline dates for all award categories can be found at sba.gov/ca/la in the “Spotlight” section or by contacting Patrick Rodriguez at (818) 552-3222.
Nominations may be mailed to the US Small Business Administration, 330 N. Brand Blvd., Suite 1200, Glendale, California, 91203, Attn: Patrick Rodriguez.
