WASHINGTON – Do you have a small business story to tell? Every
business has one. Tell your story to the SBA and your video may
appear at National Small Business Week, SBA’s marquee event that
attracts hundreds of small business owners, Fortune 500 company
executives, Members of Congress and Obama Administration

In celebration of National Small Business Week 2012, SBA is
looking for creative videos from small businesses that show how
they have been helped by an SBA program or service.  The contest
will raise awareness of the importance of SBA programs, and the
impact the small businesses that use them have in their local

Three winning videos will also be shown during a Google+ Hangout
hosted by the SBA and the White House with SBA Administrator
Karen Mills on May 24. The winners can also participate in the
event with Administrator Mills, while she answers questions from
small businesses around the country.  All qualifying videos will
be showcased on SBA’s YouTube page.  

Contestants can enter the contest by producing an original video,
two minutes or less, that shares their story.  The list of
Contest Rules provides additional details on required video
content.  All eligible videos will be judged by SBA senior
officials on the inspirational nature of the message and the
creativity or uniqueness of the video concept.  

Videos will feature small business owners from across the country
discussing the SBA assistance the company received, the most
rewarding aspects of starting a business and how the SBA
assistance benefited the business and the local community.  Small
businesses may have received SBA business counseling,
SBA-guaranteed financing or SBA disaster assistance or
participated in a SBA contracting program or in SBA’s online

The videos can be submitted through Challenge.gov from 12pm EDT
April 16 through 5pm May 11.  The contest offers the opportunity
to celebrate entrepreneurship and hear directly from small
business owners how SBA has helped them grow and create jobs.
