South Sound Small Business of the Year Award

The South Sound Small Business Small Business of the Year Award was created to recognize a local business owner who operates a local Pierce/Thurston County WA Business who is a leader in their community as well as a person who is passionate about their business and small business in the community.

Anyone can nominate a deserving small business. Chambers of commerce, associations, individuals and companies may nominate small businesses to show their support.  Nomination is not required for consideration of the award. Only one (1) nomination is needed for each business. Additional nominations do not increase the chances of winning. Decision will be made by a panel of five local business owners within the contest area.
