    Brookings Small Business Awards - a program of the Brookings Area Chamber of Commerce and Brookings Economic Development Corporation.

    May 3-9, 2020 is National Small Business Week. The Brookings Area Chamber of Commerce and Brookings Economic Development Corporation (BEDC) understand how critical small business is to a strong economy. Our community is very fortunate to have depth, variety, and longevity within our small business sector. Both the Chamber and BEDC support small businesses through a variety of programs and initiatives, and through all stages from launching to retirement. Both organizations know the dedicated people behind these businesses, the countless hours they put in and the passion they have not just for their business, but the community as well.

    Help us celebrate these local small business champions! The Chamber and BEDC are excited to sponsor five small business awards this year and need you to nominate a  “hometown hero”. Simply click on an award title (below) for the nomination application.

    Feel free to submit as many different nominations as you would like – we know there is a long list of worthy recipients! The deadline for submitting is Friday April 17, 2020 and the awards will be announced one per day May 4-8th of National Small Business Week.

    Please contact Ashley Bigger ashley@brookingschamber.org with any questions or call the Chamber at 605-696-7561.
