The Small Business BC Successful You Awards (SYA) contest is a province-wide event that recognizes and celebrates the important contributions BC’s entrepreneurs make to their local communities and global economy. The Awards, managed by Small Business BC (SBBC), is free to enter and open to all new and existing small businesses across B.C.

Nominations will be accepted between October 1, 2012 and November 30, 2012. Each of the six award categories are nomination-based with polls collecting public votes for the top nominees. All votes will be normalized according to 2011  British Columbia Regional District population figures in order to create equal opportunity for success.

The top ten small businesses, in each category, will then asked to complete detailed applications and provide supporting materials.  These applications will then be reviewed by our panel of judges who will select the finalists for each category.

Winners will be announced at the Successful You Awards Ceremony on February 28, 2013.
