Chamber Announces Small Business Award Finalists

The Loudoun Chamber of Commerce on Monday announced the 24 finalists for this year’s 26th Annual Loudoun Small Business Awards.

The finalists are competing for top honors in six industry categories, as well as for the title of Loudoun’s Entrepreneur of the Year and The Small Business of the Year. Loudoun’s Entrepreneur of the Year finalists will be announced next Monday.

“Loudoun’s small business community has endured tremendous sacrifices and made significant contributions to rally our community’s response throughout the ongoing COVID-19 crisis,” said Chamber President Tony Howard. “The businesses and entrepreneurs we honor on Nov. 13 are representative of the grit, ingenuity and commitment to excellence our small business community always demonstrates, in good times and bad.”

This year’s finalists were chosen by committees of Loudoun business leaders and industry experts, who met virtually to review nearly 100 applications.

Now, the Loudoun community has the opportunity to pick this year’s People’s Choice Award honoree. The week-long, online ballot allows the public to vote for their favorite finalists in each industry category. Not only do these votes help determine which finalist earns top honors in their category, the top overall vote winner will be named the 2020 People’s Choice Award honoree. Voting ends on Friday at 5 p.m. To vote, go to LoudounChamber.org/SBA.

The 26th annual Loudoun Small Business Awards ceremony will be held Friday, Nov. 13. To ensure maximum safety for the award finalists and other guests, the Small Business Awards will be held as a hybrid in-person and virtual event this year.

 The ceremony will take place at The National Conference Center, with attendees capped at 200 and strict social distancing and facial covering rules enforced. It also will be streamed online on the Chamber’s Facebook Page.

Sponsorships are available. For more information, call 703-777-2176 or go to LoudounChamber.org.
