Want a chance to vote for your favorite small business in King George County? You’re in luck, as the King George Economic Development Authority is now accepting nominations for its 2019 Small Business Awards.

This is the inaugural Small Business Awards program in King George and the EDA is asking the community to nominate worthy small businesses.

To be eligible, nominees must have a business in the county, have an active business license and be in good standing with King George County.



To find out more or vote for the business of your choice, go online to kinggeorgecountyva.gov/forms.aspx?FID=73. The page/form there asks for information about the business being nominated, and lists three different categories: Service, Tourism and Product, and provides definitions for each.

The page also notes that business nominees will be judged on the following criteria: growth, sustainability, innovation, community championing and evidence of quality.

The form notes that those voting may nominate as many businesses as they like, as long as they use a separate nomination form/online submission for each.

Voting is open until April 12 at 4:30 p.m.
